(Los Angeles—September 13, 2018) The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is pleased to present Merce Cunningham, Clouds and Screens, an exploration of choreographer Merce Cunningham’s dynamic artistic collaborations. Cunningham (1919–2009) revolutionized dance through his partnerships with leading artists who created costumes, films, music, and décor and whose independent creative instincts he held in the highest regard. Known for embracing risk and chance, Cunningham believed in the radical notion that movement, sound, and visual art could exist independently of each other, coming together only during the “common time” of a performance. Spanning BCAM, Level 1, the exhibition features immersive installations by Charles Atlas and Andy Warhol, two artists associated with the choreographer’s company, along with two video projections of early dances by Cunningham.

Anticipating the celebration of Cunningham’s centennial, Merce Cunningham, Clouds and Screens is organized by José Luis Blondet, curator of special initiatives at LACMA, and is excerpted from Merce Cunningham: Common Time, a major survey of the artist’s collaborative projects organized by the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, in 2017.
