The legacy of acclaimed choreographer and artist Trisha Brown (1936-2017) is the focus of this exhibition.
Born in Aberdeen, Washington, Trisha Brown moved to New York in 1961 where she went on to create over 100 choreographies and six operas in addition to numerous texts and an extensive body of works on paper.
This exhibition focuses on her film archive and drawings, charting the development of her movement language from early site-specific pieces through to her large-scale works for the proscenium stage. It also studies her ongoing influence and how she has sparked joy and inspiration for the generation of artists who follow in her footsteps.
Accompanying the exhibition is Trisha Brown: In Plain Site, a series of Brown’s short dance pieces interpreted for the landscape of Jupiter Artland, performed by Trisha Brown Dance Company as part of Edinburgh International Festival.
