Pass Carry Hold: Studio Museum Artists in Residence 2023–24
September 26, 2024–February 2025
MoMA PS1, 22–25 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City, NY

Pass Carry Hold: Studio Museum Artists in Residence 2023–24 features the work of 2023–24 artists in residence sonia louise davis, Malcolm Peacock, and Zoë Pulley. The upcoming exhibition at MoMA PS1 is the sixth year in a multiyear partnership between the Studio Museum in Harlem, The Museum of Modern Art, and MoMA PS1. Working across sound, textile, and installation, the artists in this exhibition engage methodologies of endurance and wonder to explore themes related to ancestral and intuitive knowledge. Through this work, davis, Peacock, and Pulley activate what it means to pass through, carry forward, and hold onto.

Pass Carry Hold: Studio Museum Artists in Residence 2023–24 is organized by Yelena Keller, Assistant Curator, Studio Museum in Harlem, and Jody Graf, Assistant Curator, MoMA PS1, with Adria Gunter, Curatorial Assistant, Studio Museum in Harlem.

sonia louise davis (b.1988) is a visual artist, writer, and performer born and raised in New York City. Her work is deeply invested in improvisation as embodied research. Davis has presented her work at the Whitney Museum of American Art; the Queens Museum; ACRE; Sadie Halie Projects; Ortega y Gasset; and Artists Space; among other venues. Residencies and fellowships include the Laundromat Project’s Create Change Fellowship; Civitella Ranieri; New York Community Trust Van Lier Fellowship at the International Studio & Curatorial Program; Culture Push Fellowship for Utopian Practice; Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Workspace Artist in Residence Program; Studio Immersion Project Fellowship at the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop; Right Now Artist Publication Grant from Women’s Studio Workshop; and Stoneleaf Retreat. She is an honors graduate of Wesleyan University (BA, African American studies) and an alumna of the Whitney Independent Study Program. Davis lives and works in Harlem.

Malcolm Peacock (b.1994) is an artist and athlete whose art often utilizes and alternates common physical actions—talking, gazing, braiding, singing, running—to emphasize the stakes and feelings that accompany being present in proximity to others and to one’s self. His art looks closely at ways that intimacy creates emotional spaces occupied by Black folks. He has participated in residencies at the University of Pennsylvania; St. Roch Community Church; the Joan Mitchell Center; Denniston Hill; and the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture. Peacock has exhibited at Artists Space; Terrault Gallery; the Institute of Contemporary Art at Virginia Commonwealth University; the Prospect Triennial; and the Carnegie Museum of Art. Peacock is the recipient of the 58th Carnegie International Fine Prize and the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Roy Lichtenstein Award. He earned a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2016 and an MFA from the Mason Gross School of Arts at Rutgers University in 2019.

Zoë Pulley (b.1993) is a designer and maker who utilizes stuff to surface the seemingly ordinary stories of Black folks through mixed media, typography, and audio. She defines “stuff” as artifacts both physical and nonphysical that may be relegated as unimportant to some—as merely stuff. Most recently, Pulley has shown work in a group exhibition, Dress Code, at the Newport Art Museum and in a performance at RISD Museum. Her practice includes ongoing collaborations such as a wearable line inspired by her grandmother called GRAN SANS and a collectively authored publication titled Black Joy Archive. In 2021 she designed a zine for Combahee’s Radical Call: Black Feminisms (re)Awaken Boston at the Boston Center for the Arts. Her work is held in the collections of the Valentine Museum; the Harvard Radcliffe Institute; and Printed Matter. Pulley is an inaugural recipient of the Rhode Island School of Design Society of Presidential Fellows and was awarded the Graduate Graphic Designer to Watch by GDUSA in 2023. She earned a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2015 and an MFA in graphic design from Rhode Island School of Design in 2023.
