23 Nov-24 Feb. Los Angeles-based artist Sharon Lockhart has based her installation around the unique contribution made to the world of dance by the avant-garde Israeli dance composer and textile artist Noa Eshkol, who died in 2007.
Eshkol revolutionised dance and movement notation by using numbers and symbols to record movement in a grid format. Her system provided dancers and choreographers with a platform in which to compose and notate dance, much in the same way as a composer writes music.
Lockhart utilises the main elements of Eshkol's practice, incorporating dance, theory, artistic practice, and conceptual strategy into a series of interrelated works.
This is the second exhibition to take place in the Thyssen–Bornemisza Art Contemporary (TBA21) at its new venue in the Augarten space outside the city centre.
