Janine Antoni & Stephen Petronio: Entangle
Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore | 815 North Broadway, Saratoga Springs
January 28 – July 16, 2017
This exhibition presents three works that combine action, video, and installation. Rope Dance, On the Table, and Honey Baby explore a range of ongoing multidisciplinary collaborations, which Antoni and Petronio began more than three years ago, setting out to blur the lines between artist, dancer, choreographer, and audience. Each offering has one element in common — a wooden floor — that frames different activities understood through the body.
Part 1: Rope Dance (January 28 – March 19)
Rope Dance is an interactive experience created by legendary movement artist Anna Halprin, with Antoni and Petronio. In this dance, a rope is used as a tool to both connect moving bodies and articulate the space between them. Several times during the exhibition the artist will facilitate a group experience employing the rope as originally activated by Halprin.
Part 2: On the Table (April 6 – April 30)
Part 3: Honey Baby (May 13 – July 16 )
Antoni and Petronio, who emerged from the worlds of visual art and dance respectively, will be on campus from March 1 to 4 and April 3 to 7 to engage with students, faculty, and the public. Public talks will be 5:30 p.m. March 2 and 7 p.m. April 6, both at the Tang Teaching Museum.
