Dust Gathering: An Audio+ Experience by Nina Katchadourian at MoMA

The Museum of Modern Art

11 West 53rd Street, New York, NY 10019, USA

As part of a two-year collaboration through Artists Experiment, artist Nina Katchadourian presents Dust Gathering, an audio tour offering visitors an unexpected perspective on The Museum of Modern Art by examining its dust.

Dust consists of material from both inside and outside, from Earth and the cosmos, from places very high and very low—and at the Museum, it’s literally an intermingling of different people from around the world. Noticing particularly dusty spaces in the Museum inspired Katchadourian to interview staff members about this ever-present substance that remains mostly out of sight. The audio tour features voices from within the Museum that the public rarely hears from, performing tasks that the public rarely sees. Find out what it takes to dust the suspended helicopter in the Marron Atrium atrium, learn about the building’s complex air-filtration systems, and get to know some of the particularly troublesome, dust‐attracting modernist sculptures.
