NOWs: Anti Bodies at MoMA PS1
Sunday, January 28, 2:00–6:00 p.m
Anti Bodies is an afternoon of performance, readings and installations organized with Topical Cream, a platform for female-identifying and gender non-conforming persons working at the intersection of contemporary art and technology. Focusing on artists whose practices explore methods of self-preservation, the featured work demonstrates how gestures of resistance can be choreographed through performance and communal action. The program includes a performance by Analisa Teachworth, in collaboration with Jonas Wendelin; video screenings presented by Jacksonville-based artist Redeem Pettaway; an exploration of surveillance, control, and seduction by Julia Scher; and live concerts from Zsela and Deli Girls. The program is complemented by additional programming presented throughout the museum, including an ongoing performance by Michelle Young Lee examining the labor of care, a video installation by Sara Hornbacher, and a recital situated within an environment created by Sarah Zapata with poetry and readings from Zapata, Maya Martinez, Rin Johnson, Sophia Le Fraga, and Natasha Stagg.
Topical Cream, founded by Lyndsy Welgos, Whitney Mallett, and Ara Anjargolian, takes an active part in New York City’s contemporary artistic and digital community through critical feminist interventions.
Tickets: $15 (MoMA Members $13)
Programming throughout the building free with museum admission
