Tracing Beyond @ MoMA

The Museum of Modern Art collaborates with Movement Research to present several events related to MoMA’s exhibit on Judson Dance Theater, The Work Is Never Done.

January 24, MoMA hosts Tracing Beyond, a session in MR’s continuing Studies Project. Ambika Raina moderates a discussion between dance artists Miguel Gutierrez, Parijat Desai, Tara Aisha Willis, and David Thompson.

This Studies Project traces the legacies of dance beyond Judson Dance Theater, considering the complex web of influences and developments in the years before, during, and in the many decades since. Guest artists and audience members will discuss the apparent, residual, and invisible experiences of race and culture within experimental practices in movement in an effort to decolonize its lineages.
