Three of the most renowned voices in contemporary dance, Boris Charmatz, Simone Forti, and Ralph Lemon, come together for the first time in a conversation about museum practices of presenting, collecting, and conserving performance-based art, and what we can learn from the legacy of dance. The artists address their distinct and seemingly parallel concerns through a presentation of films, focusing on the question of the value of ephemerality, the memory of the dance, and the experience of inhabiting art spaces. This is the first event organized in conjunction with Lemon’s Research Residency and Charmatz’s Musée de la danse project in MoMA’s Marron Atrium, which features Forti, among other artists.
