Paper Dance is both a dynamic retrospective spanning thirty years of photographs and sculptures by Janine Antoni and a solo dance performance by the artist developed collaboratively with pioneering dancer and choreographer Anna Halprin. Experience Paper Dance as it evolves this season:
As an exhibition, Paper Dance consists of a wooden dance floor and thirty-nine crates containing a selection of Antoni’s sculpture and photography spanning from 1989 to the present, exhibited in three cycles focusing on the themes of motherhood, identity, and absence.
Antoni performs fifteen times throughout the exhibition for an intimate audience, exploring the materiality of brown paper and responding to her own artwork within the gallery.
On view during museum hours, the artist and art handlers will pack, unpack, and reinstall the work, before and after performances.
