**The Performance Program is part of MoMA’s increased focus on the historical as well as the contemporary practice of performance-based art. The ongoing series brings documentation and reenactments of historic performances, thematic group exhibitions, solo presentations, and original performance works to various locations throughout the Museum.

Choreographer and director Faustin Linyekula (Congolese, b.1974) creates works that reflect the sociopolitical history and cultural struggles of his native Democratic Republic of Congo. In What Is Black Music Anyway…/Self-Portraits, a dance/performance he created for Some sweet day, Linyekula is joined by Congolese guitarist and composer Flamme Kapaya (Congolese, b.1978) and South African singer Hlengiwe Lushaba (South African, b.1982). Together they contemplate what black music might be in the Museum’s white cube space.

A response with Dean Moss and Faustin Linyekula will be held on Saturday, October 27 at 4:00 p.m.

In conjunction with the exhibition Some sweet day
