Of the Wall Part 2-Seven Works by Trisha Brown
Date: Thursday, September 30th 2010Sunday, October 3rd 2010
Venue: Whitney Museum of American Art945 Madison Avenue at 75th Street

Trisha Brown’s website touts her as most acclaimed choreographer of the post modern era, a claim backed up by seemingly countless awards. Count a National Museum of Dance Whitney Hall of Fame induction, a National Medal of Arts, and a MacArthur Foundation genius grant as just a few of her many accolades. Performing seminal works from the seventies on, Brown’s company is known for its response to art works, such as performing a striptease behind Marcel Duchamp’s Large Glass. Performances will be recreated daily, and are not limited to the company’s work. Legendary artists such as John Baldessari, Yoko Ono, and Vito Acconci are also included as part of the Of the Wall exhibition series that focuses on using the body in live performance.
