In anticipation of Xavier Le Roy’s exhibition, Retrospective, on view this fall at MoMA PS1, the artist will present a lecture UNTITLED (2005).
The presentation is followed by two panel discussions around the recent cross-pollination between the fields of visual arts and dance.
In the first panel, choreographers Ryan Kelly, Jennifer Lacey, and Douglas Dunn as well as art historian Claire Bishop will discuss how experimental dance has unworked the choreographic discipline, tracing some of the relations between American postmodern dance and contemporary conceptual practices in France and Europe, as well as across critical and creative scenes. Dance scholar Noémie Solomon will moderate the discussion.
For the second panel, choreographer Xavier Le Roy will share his thoughts and experiences of presenting choreographic work in an art institutional context. He is joined by the acclaimed sculptor Janine Antoni who, in return, has recently created work with choreographers for dance venues. André Lepecki, performance and dance theorist, will engage in conversation with the two artists. The panel is moderated by MoMA PS1 Associate Curator, Jenny Schlenzka.
MoMA PS1’s acclaimed VW Sunday Sessions program welcomes visitors to experience art live and in real time. Embracing performance, music, dance, conversations, and film, the program vividly demonstrates how these art forms can push us to engage with our contemporary world in creative, illuminating ways. With an emphasis on artistic practices that blur and break traditional genre boundaries, the program supports and commissions new work, inviting artists, curators, and other cultural instigators to share their latest projects.
