No Longer Showing.
An evening celebrating the publication of Before Pictures, a new book by Douglas Crimp about New York City during the 1970s. Part autobiography, part cultural history, Before Pictures includes chapters about Crimp’s encounters with performance art and dance—Merce Cunningham, George Balanchine, disco, and more. Crimp will read portions of those chapters and discuss Before Pictures with a stellar cast of interlocutors: Judson Dance Theater founder, filmmaker, and choreographer Yvonne Rainer; choreographer and former Cunningham dancer Silas Riener; and New York City Ballet principal dancer Adrian Danchig-Waring.
Books will be available for sale at the event, and Crimp will sign copies after the discussion.November 21, 7pm
This event will be live streamed at 7pm EST:
This event is made possible with support from Axe-Houghton Foundation and Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation, and in part by public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
