Description: This workshop will use the framework of the iLANDing scores to research some of the art works in MOMA’s collection. What happens when we propose that the artwork itself is an ecological system that we inhabit? What kinds of movement emerge from this investigation? What new conceptual possibilities between performance and visual art are activated through this embodied process of the score? The art work becomes performance, the performance becomes the artifact, everything is experienced through movement. We will start by working with the iLANDIng scores outdoors then bring that experience into the museum to research particular artworks. From that we will create performance events as artifacts of this exchange of the resonance between movement, form, scales of sensation, time and experience -locating new aesthetic value in artistic frames for inhabiting our world.
The materials explored in this workshop will culminate with a public manifestation at The Museum of Modern Art, in conjunction with Judson Dance Theater: The Work Is Never Done. Participation in the workshop does not require you to participate in the manifestation at MoMA.
Location (venue, city, state, country): 122 Community Center and the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY, USA
