Judson Dance Theater: The Work is Never Done

Written by | Art & Design

from Brown Lightfall 1963

This September, the Museum of Modern Art will display a major exhibition, Judson Dance Theater: The Work is Never Done, celebrating the obstacles and accomplishments of the Judson Dance Theater, a group of choreographers and artists who changed the landscape of modern dance. Taking its name from Judson Memorial Church in New York’s Greenwich Village, Judson Dance Theatre redefined and challenged what was accepted (and not accepted) as dance via a series of organized open workshops that would later evolve into performances. Judson Dance Theater: The Work Is Never Done celebrates their unconventional spirit of experimentation and the impact of a body of work that still resonates today. The exhibition will tell the extraordinary story of this dance revolution though a gallery exhibition with over 300 objects, a print publication and a scheduled performance program in the MoMA’s Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron atrium. The exhibition will be on display from September 16, 2018 to February 3, 2019. Judson Dance Theater: The Work Is Never Done is organized by Ana Janevski, Thomas J. Lax, and Martha Joseph. moma.org
