Exhibition Talk: Susan Rosenberg
Monday, November 6
101 Spring Street
New York, NY
Susan Rosenberg, Consulting Historical Scholar at the Trisha Brown Dance Company, and author of Trisha Brown: Choreography as Visual Art (2017), discuss the collaborations between Donald Judd and choreographer Trisha Brown on Son of Gone Fishin’ (1981) and Newark (Niweweorce) (1987). Judd contributed the visual presentation (sets and costumes) for Son of Gone Fishin’ and expanded his explorations of color, space, and architecture in Newark (Niweweorce), for which he also devised the sound score. Rosenberg will illuminate Brown and Judd’s working process and the impact these collaborations had on both artists subsequent work.
This talk is part of the Fall 2017 public programs in New York and Texas that explore aspects of Donald Judd’s relationship with his contemporaries in New York from the 1960s through the 1980s. The talk series coincides with Yayoi Kusama, an exhibition of four paintings by the artist on the ground floor of 101 Spring Street.
