Description

Since the mid twentieth century, dance has expanded beyond the stage, with works presented in myriad forms in galleries and museums around the world. From artistic experiments and reworks of historical choreographies to performances responding to permanent collections, dance as a mode of expression has increasingly carved out a unique place in institutions and exhibitions as a means to engage audiences. 

Precarious Movements: Choreography and the Museum is a survey of the choreographic turn within the visual arts, mapping a new field of practice that considers dance a contemporary-art media. Featuring more than twenty expert contributions from performers, scholars, critics, choreographers and arts professionals working across archives, conservation, curation and production, this publication scopes the work of the work, the artists and institutions, and the legacy and trace of choreography in the museum today.


Edited by Erin Brannigan, Pip Wallis, Hannah Mathews and Louise Lawson with Amita Kirpalani, the publication features more than twenty expert contributions from performers, scholars, critics, choreographers and arts professionals working across archives, conservation, curation and production.
