An Exhibition of the Art of Trisha Brown and Her Collaborators
“When I draw, I love operating in a band of mystery.” Trisha Brown
September 28 to December 11, 2015
Open daily 11am–4:30pm | Free
Bryn Mawr College, Canaday Library
Class of 1912 Rare Book Room Gallery
101 North Merion Avenue, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010
Drawings, writings, and other works by Trisha Brown and her collaborators—including by Robert Rauschenberg, Elizabeth Murray, and Nancy Graves—are displayed in an exhibition organized by Bryn Mawr’s department of Special Collections. (Re)framing Collaboration opens a window on how the visual arts informed Brown’s choreography, and presents drawings and paintings that stand on their own as works of artistic expression.
The exhibition will incorporate photographs, video/audio, objects, and sketches, drawings and prints, all materials that have figured prominently in the development and realization of Brown’s complex body of performance and visual art. Works and documents are drawn from the Trisha Brown Dance Company archives, Sikkema Jenkins Gallery, and private collections in New York and Philadelphia.
