Redefining the kinds of movement that could count as dance, the Judson participants—Trisha Brown, Lucinda Childs, Philip Corner, Bill Dixon, Judith Dunn, David Gordon, Alex Hay, Deborah Hay, Fred Herko, Robert Morris, Steve Paxton, Rudy Perez, Yvonne Rainer, Robert Rauschenberg, Carolee Schneemann, and Elaine Summers, among others—would go on to profoundly shape all fields of art in the second half of the 20th century.
Through live performance and some 300 objects including film, photographic documentation, sculptural objects, scores, music, poetry, architectural drawings, and archival material, the exhibition celebrates the group’s multidisciplinary and collaborative ethos as well as the range of its participants. The Work Is Never Done includes a gallery exhibition, a print publication, and an ambitious performance program in the Museum’s Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium.

"Figure a Sea" performed at The Venice Biennale Dance 2018



The Cullberg Ballet will be presented at Teatro alle Tese, Venice, on June 30. Figure a Sea was created for 21 dancers and premiered at Dansens Hus in Stockholm in September 2015. Audiences and reviewers around the world have consistently described Figure a Sea as a masterpiece. “Figure a Sea is a meditation on seeing. Seeing music, fleeting incidences and synchronicities, and the unnamable. It is a space for seeing oneself seeing,” says Deborah Hay.
