A Panel Discussion
In conjunction with the exhibition Dorothea Tanning: Early Designs for the Stage, The Drawing Center presents a panel discussion focusing on the relationship between the visual arts and performance in the twentieth century. The discussion will focus in particular on Dorothea Tanning's collaboration with George Balanchine throughout the 1940s and 50s, which challenged both artists to expand their ideas about their own work, and the viewer's perception of the dynamic intersections of dance, performance, design, and visual art. Panelists will include Ann Temkin, The Marie-Josee and Henry Kravis Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art; Robert Greskovic, freelance writer and dance critic for The Wall Street Journal; and Anna Finke, Wardrobe Supervisor for Merce Cunningham Dance Company. Moderated by Joanna Kleinberg and Rachel Liebowitz, the co-curators of Dorothea Tanning: Early Designs for the Stage.
