Yvonne Rainer exhibition, London July/August


Recommended Posts

"This exhibition is the first to present live performances of Rainer’s dance works alongside other aspects of her practice: theoretical and lyrical writing, sketches and scores, photographs of performances, documentary and experimental films, and an audio recording of one of her early performative lectures."

 

The exhibition runs from July 11 to August 10 at the Raven Row gallery, near Liverpool Street station.

 

(Yvonne Rainer famously produced the No Manifesto in 1965:

 

No to spectacle.
No to virtuosity.
No to transformations and magic and make-believe.
No to the glamour and transcendency of the star image.
No to the heroic.
No to the anti-heroic.
No to trash imagery.
No to involvement of performer or spectator.
No to style.
No to camp.
No to seduction of spectator by the wiles of the performer.
No to eccentricity.
No to moving or being moved.)
