Hunter of Liturgy at Mercury Lounge (more by Greg Cristman)
Liturgy

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.

Grand Openings have portions of the program devoted to Near Dark, sand painting, live blogging, and have even commissioned NYC "white metallers" Liturgy to play part of the program TONIGHT at MoMA (7/29), or should I say this afternoon, starting at 6PM. Get there early and check out the full schedule for Grand Openings Return of The Blogs (we're confused too).

Liturgy also play with Asobi Seksu and Boris at Irving Plaza on Oct 27th. Tickets are on sale now, and you can try and win them at our Facebook page.
