Operating at the intersections of dance, art and performance for nearly 40 years, acclaimed Japanese movement/performance artists Eiko & Koma have built up an enormously influential body of movement-theater productions, including theatrically staged performances, site works, dance videos, gallery-based performance installations and collaborations with leading music, dance and visual artists.

Two visual essays"" by noted photographers Philip Trager and Jan Henle and a selection of poems by Forrest Gander round out the volume.""

Trisha Brown: So That the Audience Does Not Know Whether I Have Stopped DancingTrisha Brown: So That the Audience Does Not Know Whether I Have Stopped Dancing

Published by Walker Art Center.
Text by Peter Eleey, Philip Bither.

Best known for her innovative choreography, which revolutionized Modern dance, Trisha Brown has for many years made drawings and other works beyond the stage that integrate the performing and visual arts. Drawing has long featured prominently in her practice, shifting from a tool for schematic composition into a fully realized component of her broader investigation into the limits of her own body. Whether she is working within the frame of a sheet of paper, on the wall or on the stage, Brown delights in the play between structure and improvisation, between repetition and invention and between choice and chance. This volume, published to accompany an exhibition at the Walker Art Center, presents a broad survey of Brown's visual arts practice going back more than three decades. Featuring over 40 drawings, it includes essays by exhibition curator Peter Eleey and performing arts curator Philip Bither, as well as a specially-commissioned survey of Brown's drawing vocabulary contributed by the artist.

How Latitudes Become FormsHow Latitudes Become Forms

Art in the Global Age

Published by Walker Art Center.
Edited by Philippe Vergne. Contributions by Philip Büther, Vasif Kortun, Baraka Sele, Kathy Halbreich. Text by Paulo Herkenhoff, Steve Dietz, Cuauhtemoc Medina, Hidenaga Otori, Hou Hanru, Vishakha Desai.

The rise of globalism has created tremendous challenges to old economic, political and cultural paradigms, changes that are increasingly reflected in diverse artistic practices across the planet. If disciplinary boundaries are now crossed as easily as geographic ones, how does the new internationalism that we are facing affect aesthetics and artistic production? Is there a link, for example, between the rise of video works and the global availability of digital media? Does the global information age facilitate an international language of art and an alternative reading of history, from art history toward art histories? From the perspective of a museum of modern and contemporary art--a purely European construct--the art institution has to overcome a major contradiction, one that exists between its mission of permanence and its mission of change. How can cultural institutions contribute to the revamping of their own structures now that the hegemony of Western modernity is being challenged? How can museums connect with new audiences through different practices, different scholarships, and different interpretive strategies that grow out of the sedimentation of their own history? To invite and encourage such dialogue, How Latitudes Become Forms looks at current scholarship on globalism and changing curatorial practices, and identifies critical models provided by artists themselves, featuring thought-provoking essays and conversations by curators, critics, and cultural programmers from across the world, as well as multidisciplinary artworks by more than 40 artists from Brazil, China, India, Japan, South Africa, Turkey and the United States.
