Special Order:

pool 5 will be presented on MoMA's 4th floor, in the studio, through March 20, 2022.
 
pool 5 is the title of both a book and performance in which the artist Nora Turato collects language from a range of sources. These “pools” of texts, pulled from the Internet, media headlines, advertisements, conversations, books, commercial products, and her own thoughts, are assembled and arranged, with no logic or narrative structure, into a growing script that Turato memorizes and performs. In Nora Turato’s virtuosic performances, spoken word, graphic design, and bookmaking are intertwined to explore the possibilities of language in a culture oversaturated with information.

This publication of pool 5, produced for MoMA and designed by the artist and the designer Sabo Day, will also be presented in the Kravis Studio during the run of the Turato's exhibition, serving simultaneously as prop, set, exhibition, archive, and artist’s book.
