MoMA PS1 announces events to raise funds for Hurricane Sandy relief

. November 30, 2012

MoMA PS1 is hosting two major events in December 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.
