Merce Cunningham

Born Centralia, Wash. 1919; lives and works in New York.

Merce Cunningham, one of the most important choreographers and dancers of the postwar period, has worked extensively in the visual arts, both through his collaborations with artists such as Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, and also through his own works. Cunningham's choreographic notations over the past sixty years comprise an enormous variety of visual expression in complete scores and notations. Cunningham has also made drawings, mostly of plants, animals (both real and invented), and human figures which comment upon and relate to his interest in the static and moving form. A retrospective of Cunningham's work, organized by Germano Celant, is touring to Fundació Antoni Tàpies, Barcelona; Museu Serralves, Porto, Castello di Rivoli; Museum Moderner Kunst, Vienna.
