On (the) Line

Performance 11–15: On Line
Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium

January 12–February 6, 2011

The dancing body has long been subject matter for drawing, as seen in a variety of works included in the exhibition On Line: Drawing Through the Twentieth Century, currently on view in The Museum of Modern Art's sixth-floor special exhibition gallery. These documentations show dance in two dimensions, allowing it to be seen in a gallery setting. But if one considers line as the trace of a point in motion—an idea at the core of this exhibition—then the act of dance and performance itself becomes a drawing, an insertion of drawing into the time and three-dimensional space of our lived world. In conjunction with the exhibition, and as part of MoMA's ongoing Performance Exhibition Series, a program of live performance and dance is presented in the Museum's Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium. All performances are included with Museum admission.
