THE MUSEUM OF MODERN ART PRESENTS LIVE PERFORMANCES OF NORA TURATO: POOL 5 FROM MARCH 5 – MARCH 20
March 5, 2022 - March 20, 2022$14 – $25
The Museum of Modern Art will present live performances of Nora Turato: pool 5, at The Museum of Modern Art from March 5 through March 20 in the Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Studio. Performances will take place each Wednesday, Thursday, Friday at 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m., and
Saturday and Sunday, 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m.
In Nora Turato’s virtuosic performances, spoken word, graphic design, and bookmaking are intertwined to explore the possibilities of language in a culture oversaturated with information. Turato collects words and phrases from a range of sources: the Internet, media headlines, advertisements, conversations, books, commercial products, and her own thoughts. pool 5—which takes the form of a performance and a book—assembles and arranges these pools of text into a growing script that Turato memorizes and performs, alternating rhythm and intonation, voices and modes.
pool 5 will conclude with a post-performance conversation with Nora Turato and MoMA curator Ana Janevski on March 20 following the 3:oo p.m. performance. The publication presented in the space serves simultaneously as prop, set, exhibition, archive, and artist’s book.
