MoMA Opens News Exhibition & Performances: “Yve Laris Cohen: Studio/Theater”
The Museum of Modern Art will present the new exhibition Yve Laris Cohen: Studio/Theater on view in the Museum’s Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Studio, from October 8th 2022 through January 1st of 2023. For this new installation, Laris Cohen will repurpose the remains of the Doris Duke Theatre (originally named the Studio/Theatre), which was destroyed in 2020 by a fire at Jacob’s Pillow, a historic dance site in Becket, Massachusetts.
Laris Cohen’s work uses elements of theatrical architecture—walls, curtains, rigging systems, and sprung floors—and considers the everyday labor that goes into constructing, handling, and maintaining them. These materials transform over time, whether from physical deterioration, active repair, or changing status from architecture into artwork and back again.
Studio/Theater consists of two alternating performances, titled Preservation and Conservation, presented on alternating Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. Staged among the remains of the Doris Duke, these performances will harness the event of the fire to explore approaches to maintaining both material objects and live art forms.
Venue: Museum of Modern Art
11 West 53rd Street, between 5th and 6th Avenues
