Trisha Brown: Dance and Art in Dialogue, 1961-2001
October 10, 2003 - January 25, 2004
For more than four decades, dancer/choreographer Trisha Brown has worked in collaboration with some of the most celebrated visual artists, composers, and designers of our time. This interdisciplinary exhibition presents Brown's collaborations with visual artists Robert Rauschenberg, Nancy Graves, Fujiko Nakaya, Donald Judd, and Terry Winters. On view will be paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, sets, costumes, models, video and sound installations that were created for Brown's performances, as well as related works that led to or were derived from these collaborations.
In addition, Brown will present her 2003-2004 New York dance season at the New Museum, performing many of her early works from the Judson Dance Theater period and the 1970s. Dance and Art in Dialogue is guest curated by Hendel Teicher.
Complementing the exhibition, the Trisha Brown Dance Company will present its 2003-2004 performance season at the New Museum. The Company, as well as several student groups, will perform a selection of Brown's work from the early 1970s.
