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

We will miss Trisha Brown, fearless dancer, choreographer, artist and collaborator, who died March 18 in San Antonio. Pictured here with Robert Rauschenberg while working on the costumes for her 1983 dance, Set and Reset, Brown was integral to New York's avant-garde dance scene from the 1960s onward. A founding member of Judson Dance Theater, she made dances that "eliminated bravura, academic technique, acting and musicality — the hallmarks of modern dance as it had been developed by Martha Graham and others, not to mention ballet," in the words of Alastair Macaulay of The New York Times. Perhaps most notorious for her seminal 1970 dance Man Walking Down the Side of a Building, in which a dancer in a harness did just that, she influenced more than five generations and collaborated with some of the greatest creative minds of the twentieth century, including Yvonne Rainer, Donald Judd, Merce Cunningham and Laurie Anderson, to name just a few. Featured photograph is by Terry Van Brundt, from the stupendous catalog to MoMA's forthcoming Robert Rauschenberg retrospective.
