Torkwase Dyson for MoMA PopRally-The Shapes that Make the Black

Responding to Wolfgang Laib’s evocation of the past and present in his seminal work Milkstone, Dyson’s one-day presentation is concerned with the ritual production of geometries that inform the nonlinear and indeterminable conditions of blackness and black as metaphors and matter. Dyson has carefully built a drawing tool, with which to make a live-action drawing of an event horizon in the Museum.


PopRally is a series of events at The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1 that serve as a gateway for young and diverse audiences to engage with MoMA. Led by a cross-departmental committee of Museum staff, PopRally produces dynamic programs including artist collaborations, performances, film screenings, and digital content that encourage new and experimental ways of encountering modern and contemporary art.
