PS122 + Yehuda Duenyas are moving into the future.

PS122 is incredibly proud to report that, in collaboration with artist Yehuda Duenyas, we’ve received a Doris Duke Charitable Foundation Implementation grant for the Building Demand for the Arts program. This program supports partnerships between artists and arts organizations focused on using the performing arts in unique ways to develop meaningful connections.

“We believe that strong, creative partnerships between artists and organizations have the potential to nurture a public that is deeply invested in and understanding of the way the performing arts enriches it,” said Cheryl Ikemiya, senior program officer for the Arts at DDCF. “We are delighted to support this outstanding cohort of grantees and are confident that they will act upon this shared belief and engage their communities in bold and unconventional ways.” Read the full press release from Doris Duke.

Here at PS122, we’re partnering with director, technology designer and long time PS122 artist Yehuda Duenyas to work on the development of our virtual programming series. As Yehuda describes it, “I see this series as an emerging hybrid art-form made with the bones of live performance, the nervous system of new media and interactive technology, and a mind devoted to connecting humans to one another.”

Here’s a bit of Yehuda’s recent work with the Ad Council:

Needless to say, we’re excited by the possibilities.
