Through live performance, film, photography, sculptural objects, musical scores, poetry, a video installation and archival materials, experience the brief period in the early 1960s when a group of choreographers, visual artists, composers, and filmmakers gathered in NYC’s Judson Memorial Church for a series of workshops that ultimately redefined what counted as dance. The performances that evolved from these workshops incorporated everyday movements—gestures drawn from the street or the home; their structures were based on games, simple tasks, and social dances. Multiple-week segment focus on the work of individual artist: Yvonne RainerDeborah HayDavid GordonLucinda ChildsSteve Paxton, and Trisha Brown.


* Casual Cafe 2 on the second floor has yummy Italian food and high chairs. In the summer snack on small plates and gelato in the peaceful Sculpture Garden. Stop by the midtown outpost of the inventive bakery Momofuku Milk Bar two blocks north for aptly-named crack pie and soft serve cereal milk ice cream.
