  • Trisha Brown

    Walker Art Center
    725 Vineland Place
    April 18 - August 17

    Curated by Peter Eeley

    Dubbing this the “Year of Trisha,” the Walker will celebrate the doyenne of postmodern choreography with an exhibition that charts a course from Brown’s fabled days with the Judson Dance Theater in the early 1960s to the present. Stage works will be complemented by pieces like Man Walking down the Side of a Building, 1970—which is just that—and those that involve interaction with installations housed in the galleries, where forty-five of the works on paper Brown has made throughout her career will also be shown. Initially, Brown used drawing as a means of working out choreographic ideas. Over time, however, she came to see the page as a choreographic space in itself, and so began to use her entire body to make marks on large sheets of paper, as she will do in a performance during the opening of this exhibition.
