This month MoMA PS1 hosts two major events to raise needed funds for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts: a special Sunday Sessions, featuring performances in the VW Dome at MoMA PS1, co-presented with Pitchfork (December 2) and a benefit in Miami during Art Basel Miami Beach, co-hosted with Volkswagen (December 7).

Additional Sunday Sessions programs this month include a day of collaborative performances and experimental films presented by Riot of Perfume magazine and a panel discussion organized by Tom Tom Magazine (December 9); and a festival honoring the Italian artist and filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini, featuring screenings, performances, readings, and lectures celebrating his influence as a poet, writer, political activist, and public figure (December 16).

MoMA PS1 AND PITCHFORK PRESENT A SPECIAL SUNDAY SESSIONS TO BENEFIT HURRICANE SANDY RELIEF EFFORTS
Sunday, December 2, 4-7pm
Tickets: 12 USD (includes museum admission)

An afternoon of performances by Oneohtrix Point Never (DJ), Holly Herndon (live), and
Ducktails (DJ)
4–7pm, the VW Dome
All proceeds go to the Mayor’s Fund for NYC Hurricane Relief.

Oneohtrix Point Never
is the highly regarded experimental/electronic project of Daniel Lopatin. Known for his production and arrangement work, Lopatin has collaborated with Antony Hegarty, Doug Aitken, Fennesz, Tim Hecker, and Hans-Peter Lindstrøm, among others.

A classically trained soprano, as a teenager Holly Herndon immersed herself in Berlin’s techno music scene. Since returning to the States, she has created a sound that hybridizes her modern composition training and an undying devotion to club music, using instruments and her own processed vocals.

Ducktails is the one-man psychedelic pop project of Matthew Mondanile, guitarist for the well-known band Real Estate. Caught between genres, Ducktails attempts to realize a shared cultural memory and nostalgia within its highly visual compositions. 

VOLKSWAGEN AND MoMA PS1 BENEFIT FOR HURRICANE SANDY RELIEF IN MIAMI
Friday, December 7, 9pm–midnight
Delano Hotel Miami Beach, 1685 Collins Avenue

Instead of its annual party in Miami during Art Basel, MoMA PS1 is partnering with Volkswagen to host a special benefit for Hurricane Sandy relief at the Delano Beach Club in Miami Beach. All proceeds from the benefit go to the Rockaway Waterfront Alliance.

SUNDAY SESSIONS HOSTED BY RIOT OF PERFUME MAGAZINE
Sunday, December 9, 12–6pm

Riot of Perfume magazine presents a day of collaborative performances and experimental films, featuring Tom Roy, Grant Singer, Adam Jones, Gambles, and the record release of STARRED’s debut EP, Prison to Prison
3–6pm, the VW Dome

Paris/New York–based DJ Tom Roy opens the performance, accompanied by projections of an original experimental film by director Grant Singer and projections by artist Adam Jones. Singer songwriter Matthew Daniel Siskin, aka Gambles, presents the dark, folk music sound of his first released track, “Trust.” STARRED (Liza Thorn and Matthew Koshak) creates a sound infused with “a perverted love of both Americana music and ambient noise—a music of negative spaces, made by really intense people.” 

A Short Course on Resistance, presented by Art Comments
2–3pm, the Mini Kunsthalle

Join A Short Course on Resistance as the book club discusses Claire Bishop’s Artificial Hells: Participatory Art and the Politics of Spectatorship. For more details, please e-mail info [​at​] artcomments.com.

Honda of Cibo Matto and Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band. 

SUNDAY SESSIONS PRESENTS PIER PAOLO PASOLINI: INTELLETTUALE
Sunday, December 16, 12–6pm

PIER PAOLO PASOLINI: INTELLETTUALE
With Paul Chan, Ninetto Davoli, Emi Fontana, Barbara Hammer, Alfredo Jaar, Lovett/Codagnone, and Fabio Mauri
12–6pm, the VW Dome

On the occasion of the MoMA retrospective Pier Paolo Pasolini, Sunday Sessions presents a live program focusing on Pasolini as a poet, writer, activist, and public figure who was embedded in the collective consciousness of postwar Italy. 

In 1975, just months before the director’s mysterious death, artist Fabio Mauri created a work about Pasolini’s double role as artist and public personality. For Intellettuale Mauri projected Pasolini’s The Gospel According to Matthew (1964) onto the director’s torso, turning him into a public screen. Using Mauri’s work as a starting point, contemporary artists present, perform, screen, and read material that reflect on Pasolini as an artist and intellectual who was deeply committed to social and political change. 

*Please note there will be no Sunday Sessions events on December 23 and 30, but the museum is still open to the public from 12 to 6pm. Sunday Sessions programming resumes on Sunday, January 6. Happy Holidays!

SPONSORSHIP
The VW Dome at MoMA PS1 is made possible by a partnership with Volkswagen of America.

Sunday Sessions is made possible by MoMA’s Wallis Annenberg Fund for Innovation in Contemporary Art through the Annenberg Foundation.
