Move: Choreographing You exhibition video

Posted on October 7, 2010

The Hayward Gallery’s MOVE: Choreographing You is a major exhibition examining the interaction between visual arts and dance, from the 1960s to the present.

The exhibition invites the visitor to become part of the art, which includes installations and sculptures by artists including William Forsythe, Trisha Brown, Siobhan Davies, Yvonne Rainer and Wayne McGregor.

This video, produced to mark the launch, shows two works by German sculptor Franz Erhard Walther. Watch what happened when London passersby were asked to wear pieces #31 and #48 from his Werksatz series, which forced them to be too close or too far away from each other.

The exhibition runs at the Hayward Gallery on London’s South Bank from October 13–January 9. See http://move.southbankcentre.co.uk/ for information.
