Maria Hassabi: Plastic

MoMA, 2016

Maria Hassabi: Plastic was a month-long, commissioned live performance staged throughout MoMA. Performers moved at a barely perceptible pace across the museum’s Atrium floor, Gund Lobby staircase, and the 4th floor stairs, exploring the tension between stillness and sustained movement. The illustrated brochure, which accompanied the performance, provided viewers with both historical and conceptual context.
