DESCRIPTION

Hear a lecture on the history of exchange between contemporary dance and museums.

Over the past several decades, contemporary dance has become an integral part of contemporary art institutions’ programs. Now museums are offering a platform for dancers to show their works: curators construct exhibitions around contemporary dance, and even the Tate Modern once became a museum of dance for two whole days.

In this talk, we will look into the reasons behind these developments, and analyze the processes happening now and their possible outcomes in the future. We will also revisit the history of exchange between contemporary dance and contemporary art and discuss the most significant works and events that have shaped this exchange.
