July 20–August 1, 2011 For daily updates and detailed event information, visit the Grand Openings Calendar Page at http://www.reenaspaulings.com/MoMAblog.htm MoMA’s Performance Program resumes with a new commission by the New York–based artist collective Grand Openings. In collaboration with musicians, performance art scholars, sound artists, filmmakers, writers, and friends, the group is composing a multifaceted live program that relates to the history of performance art in general, as well as MoMA’s particular institutional structure. Some sections are informed by encounters with the Museum Archives, current exhibitions, the Museum's architecture, and staff members; others are indirect meditations on the practice of performing itself. The title of the program, Grand Openings Return of the Blogs, refers to an additional documentary element of the work—a daily account of the actions in the form of handwritten texts, fabricated objects, and audio podcasts—which will be presented in the gallery space and on MoMA.org. Grand Openings comprises five core members—Ei Arakawa, Jutta Koether, Jay Sanders, Emily Sundblad, and Stefan Tcherepnin—with different backgrounds in art, music, curating, and criticism. Their partly scripted, partly improvised actions; loose choreographies; musical scores; and acts of self-reflection coexist within a chaotic structure. To view images of these artworks, please visit the Online Collection at moma.org/collection. MoMA Audio is available free of charge courtesy of Bloomberg.
