Who Cares? Dance in the Gallery & Musuem
This publication includes a series of conversations with dance artists, curators and directors, who share their experiences of presenting or performing dance in museum and gallery spaces. Its purpose is to offer a platform of individual voices that – as a collection – renders visible shared and differing perspectives, value systems and ideologies about movement-based practices within visual art-focused cultural spaces.
Prompting thinking about the notion of “care” for the human body, artworks, objects and architecture in a common space and who might serve those needs, the publication invites strategies for best practice for a sustainable future of this renewed meeting of dance practices and visual art institutions.
In conversation with: Andrew Bonacina, Florence Peake, Catherine Wood, Nicola Conibere, Robbie Synge, Yvonne Rainer, Frank Bock, Martin Hargreaves, Alex Sainsbury, Siobhan Davies, Hugo Worthy, Matthias Sperling, Katye Coe, Joe Moran, Stephanie Rosenthal.
