Simone Forti’s Dance Constructions (1960–61) were key forerunners to Judson Dance Theater. Made from inexpensive materials, including plywood and rope, each “construction” prompts actions such as climbing, leaning, standing or whistling. Simultaneously sculptures and performances, the works were first presented at Reuben Gallery and the artist Yoko Ono’s loft, both in New York.

The following works are performed: Accompaniment for La Monte's “2 Sounds” and La Monte's “2 Sounds”,” Censor, Huddle, Platforms, Slant Board. See Saw is performed by Malik Gaines and Alexandro Segade Thursday, October 11, at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. and Saturday, October 13, at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m.

The Dance Constructions are performed on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. throughout the exhibition.
