The Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami presents a program of major performances by Trisha Brown Dance Company. Trisha Brown, a founding figure of the American postmodern dance movement, and her renowned choreography has inspired generations of modern dance creators into the 21st century. The four performances will highlight a selection of seminal dance pieces by Brown, which builds upon the significance of artist Donald Judd’s collaborations and support of his contemporaries, echoing SoHo’s artistic community of the 1970s and ‘80s. Donald Judd designed the stage sets for two of Brown’s acclaimed works: Son of Gone Fishin’ (1981) and Newark (Niweweorce) (1987).

Trisha Brown (b. 1936, Aberdeen, WA; d. 2017, San Antonio, TX) was a groundbreaking American choreographer and dancer whose avant-garde and postmodern work and experiments in pure movement challenged a generation’s perceptions of performance. Prior to establishing the Trisha Brown Dance Company in 1970, Brown was a founding member of the Judson Dance Theater with Yvonne Rainer, as well as the improvisational Grand Union, laying the foundation for the postmodern dance movement. Throughout her career, Brown collaborated with leaders in music, theater, and the visual arts, including visual artists Donald Judd, Robert Rauschenberg, and Elizabeth Murray, and musicians Laurie Anderson, John Cage, and Alvin Curran, among others.

Trisha Brown: In Plain Site is presented as part of ICA Performs, ICA Miami’s program dedicated to showcasing major experimental time-based work and interdisciplinarity in contemporary art.
