MoMA PS1's Back to School Benefit

Thursday, September 28, 2017

7pm to 10pm - Class is in session

MoMA PS1 is going to college for this year's "Back to School" benefit with the help of New York-based collective DIS.

With more than 20 performances and interventions programmed by DIS, experience "classes" including cosplay demonstrations by Alexandro Segade and a debate on universal basic income with journalist Christopher Glazek, and a Student Union featuring beer pong and junk food along with dueling comedy shows by Talk Hole and Ruby’s World. After class, a host of competing parties will vye for your attention: Fatherhood’s foam party; GLAM with DeSe and David Moses; Gush with Pati Hertling and Angela Dimayuga; and Bubble T with drag queen karaoke performances; and close out the night with an epic dance party in the gymnasium from 10 p.m. to midnight with DJ sets by Quay Dash and other special guests.
