BWW Review: THE CUNNINGHAM TRUST Unveils a Dusty ExtractBWW Review: THE CUNNINGHAM TRUST Unveils a Dusty Extract
by Juan Michael Porter II - May 27, 2016

For whom is a dance made and why? This question kept coming to me as I watched the unveiling of Merce Cunningham's 'Cunningham Ballett' at Baryshnikov Arts Center on May 18th, 2016. Thought lost to time, a film recording of 'Ballett' was recently unearthed in the archives of Norddeutscher Rundrunk Studio Hamburg. Nearly 50 years after it was recorded, the premiere of Cunningham performing the solo 'Changeling' was shown, followed by a live presentation of the same piece. The question is to what end? As an iconoclast would Cunningham himself not have said, 'Let dead things sleep where they lie?' (more...)

Dominique Le?vy is pleased to announce the gallery's representation of artist Pat Steir, who first gained recognition in the early 1970s for her iconographic canvases and immersive wall drawings. Steir's innovative pour technique, exemplified by the artist's Waterfall canvases, positioned her at the forefront of American painting in the late 1980s. Bridging the sensibilities of Eastern philosophy, Abstract Expressionism, and Conceptual art, Steir's five-decade practice puts into play a new framework of space and perception. (more...)
