A FEAST OF ASTONISHMENTS:
January 16 - July 17, 2016
Charlotte Moorman (1933–1991) was a groundbreaking, rule-bending artist, musician, and advocate for the experimental art of her time. Trained as a classical cellist, she both performed and championed the works of visual artists, composers, and choreographers who were redefining art—collapsing the boundaries between media, and renegotiating the relationships between artist and audience. The exhibition explores her performances, the festivals she produced, and her commitment to making experimental art accessible to all.
