MoMA PS1’s ‘Back to School’ Benefit

Get schooled as MoMA PS1 returns to its origins as a public school with a one-night-only event organized by artist Ryan McNamara. Across MoMA PS1’s entirely empty galleries, artists will assume the roles of moony art teachers, intimidating PE coaches, goths, jocks, and cheerleaders — but their activities will be anything but typical.
Roam the hallways to enjoy participatory performance works, an open bar, and nostalgic childhood snacks, culminating with an epic dance party in the gymnasium. Featuring performances, lectures, installations, and other activations by Morgan Bassichis, Claire Bishop, Nikki Columbus, FlucT, Jessica MitraniSam Roeck, Justin Strauss, and more.
