Artist Collective ALLGOLD Selected for First Residency in MoMA PS1’s Adjacent Print Shop Space
MoMA PS1 is pleased to announce that Kevin Beasley, Inva Çota, Golnaz Esmaili and Stephen Decker, the four members of artist collective, ALLGOLD, are participating in a residency program initiated in October 2014 at The Print Shop at MoMA PS1.
ALLGOLD has selected Underground Resistance, the seminal Detroit-based musical collective known for its politically-motivated techno, to kick off the residency with a rare performance in New York on Sunday, December 14 at MoMA PS1. Underground Resistance will be accompanied by a range of additional performances, and discussions in an event titled “ALLGOLD Presents: Underground – An Indefinite Community?”
The residency offers ALLGOLD the opportunity to start an artist-run space located in a storefront on MoMA PS1’s block. In close proximity to the institution, yet, independent from its programming, the collective will create a social space to foster communities in which new ideas and thoughts can manifest and find an audience.
Run by artists for other artists the residency will function as an event space, artist studio, gallery and community center. The diverse backgrounds of the participants which, encompass visual art, design, and music, aim to bring together a variety of creative practices. The program ranges from scheduled events such as screenings, talks, performances, concerts and dance nights to more long term projects that invite other artists and MoMA PS1 audiences to spend time and participate in the residency.
The ALLGOLD residency is organized by Jenny Schlenzka, Associate Curator with Alex Sloane, Curatorial Assistant.
The Print Shop at MoMA PS1 is made possible by the MoMA PS1 Annual Exhibition Fund.
