Bebe Miller: Tracing History
Costumes, sets, notation, rehearsal and performance documentation, music, conversations with peers, and a new installation by New York City video artist Maya Ciarrocchi took the viewer inside Miller’s ideas and achievements. Organized by the Wexner Center’s Jerry Dannemiller, through a project developed at the Institute for Curatorial Practice in Performance at Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT, viewers could examine Miller’s choreographic process through recorded conversations, archival ephemera, interactive installations, and performance as well as through several lecture/demonstrations, tours and gallery talks that took place in the gallery. Thursday evenings during the exhibition the gallery transformed into SPACE IS THE PLACE, a downtown collision of dance, visual art, and music with a broad range of musicians performing in response to Bebe Miller’s work.
An iteration of the exhibit designed for Bates Dance Festival by Shawn Hove and Ryan Osborn was shown July 29-August 4, 2013.
