Trisha Brown
Free Measures: Drawings

Trisha Brown has played a vital role in contemporary American choreography for over thirty-five years. Begun as private notations, many of her drawings contribute to her choreographic process. As she puts it, drawing "sits in the air between me and my dancers..." In turn, she has come to see choreography as a kind of drawing. "Whether they are in air or on paper, it's a whole other vista of possibility, another way of thinking about the body moving in space that frees me up to do things I would never think of doing in dance." - paraphrased from an essay by Hendel Teicher, who organized the exhibition.

This exhibition is at The Drawing Center's Drawing Room, 40 Wooster St.
