MoMa PS1 Sunday Sessions: No Thanks Given

I’ll perform works for toy piano and electronics, including John Cage’s Suite for Toy Piano, a new work I’m writing inspired by Cage’s Lecture on Nothing, and more!

About No Thanks Given:
The Sunday before Thanksgiving, 8-Ball Community Inc. presents a program that questions the history of Thanksgiving in active resistance to colonialism, white supremacy, and the meat industry.

8-Ball Community Inc. is an independent not-for-profit organization that supports artists by providing virtual and physical meeting sites for people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds. They generate collaboration and educational exchange through public access television and radio stations, an imprint, a self publishing fair, a public library, an internship program, a residency, and a series of workshops in art-related trades. Involving every branch of their organization, this program features music and performances in the VW Dome organized by 8-Ball Radio; a screening of Awake, A Dream From Standing Rock presented by 8-Ball TV, followed by an audience Q&A with directors Josh Fox, Myron Dewey, and James Spione; and a library in the first floor corner gallery by 8-Ball Archive. Other interventions throughout the museum include live comedy organized by Bunt Cake in Artbook and a performance in the Boiler Room by Crown Royal Chess Club.
