Upcoming programs include Summer School 2012 Open House (September 9), the premiere of the Sherry Truck and a performance by Ann Liv Young (September 16) and architectural performances by IKEA Disobedients (September 16 and 23), among others.

Book worms rejoice, the NY Art Book Fair presented by Printed Matter also returns to MoMA PS1 this month (September 28–30), taking over the entire building and the courtyard. The fair and all of its related programming are free and open to the public.

Sunday Sessions with Ann Liv Young and IKEA Disobedients
Sunday, September 16, 2012, 12–6pm

Ann Liv Young introduces her Sherry Truck—a mobile Sherapy office, a sculptural coffee shop, and a boutique filled with memorabilia from Sherry’s world. Throughout the afternoon, the artist—in character as Sherry—offers individual or couples Sherapy, serves pink lattes, as well as her wares. At 4pm, Sherry will present her mobile therapy office to the public through song and speech. The audience will have an opportunity to engage with her, ask questions, and share the special day when the world receives a new platform to connect with Sherry. The show may contain adult conduct and may not be suitable for all guests.

In addition, IKEA Disobedients, an architectural performance by Madrid-based Andres Jaque Arquitectos, will take place from 3–5pm as part of the 9+1 Ways of Being Political exhibition on view concurrently at MoMA, and will reveal how recent architectural practices utilize performative actions to engage audiences with architecture in a non-traditional way.

At 5pm, join us for the launch of Evasions of Power: On the Architecture of Adjustment (published by Slought), a book which furthers ongoing discourse about human rights, geopolitical conflict, and territorial sovereignty, with contributions from an array of practitioners from fields including art, literature, philosophy, and architecture.
