The Museum of Modern Art will host the JAM Performance Festival at The Museum of Modern Art from February 2nd through February 19th. In conjunction with the exhibition Just Above Midtown: Changing Spaces, the JAM Performance Festival continues the path-making gallery’s commitment to live art with new works by artists who performed at the downtown Manhattan gallery during the 1980s. The festival will include both, a general installation and evening performances.

Throughout the final weeks of the exhibition, three new projects bring forth JAM’s spirit of improvisation, collaboration, and experimentation. Artist, vocalist, and dramatist Alva Rogers presents Topsy-Turvy; Vernon Reid, Greg Tate’s Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber, and special guests come together for Lawrence D. “Butch” Morris Conduction ® with Vernon Reid, the late cornetist and composer’s signature approach to structured improvisation; and Senga Nengudi Fittz and Kaylynn Sullivan TwoTrees, JAM alumni, premiere their first collaboration, Tying & Un-Tying.

The installation is included with museum admission; tickets to evening performances are available for purchase at All visitors to the evening performances are required to remain masked.
