Members: Member Preview—Merce Cunningham, Clouds and Screens

11 am | Fri, October 26, 2018

BCAM, Level 1

Members see it first. Members see it free. 

Anticipating the celebration of Cunningham’s centennial, Merce Cunningham, Clouds and Screens presents two large works made by artists associated with the choreographer’s company—Andy Warhol’s Silver Clouds and Charles Atlas’s MC⁹. Warhol’s whimsical Silver Clouds was used as décor for Cunningham’s 1968 dance RainForest. MC⁹, short for “Merce Cunningham to the ninth power,” is an immersive installation with excerpts from 21 dances for camera and documentary videos Atlas made with Cunningham. 

There are two additional Member Previews for this exhibition (October 25–27).
