Rethinking performance, exhibition and documentation through dance

From dance experimentations in the 70s to more recent performance-exhibitions, what does it mean to look at dance in a visual art context?

In recent months we have seen numerous dance performances and movement-based works taking place in galleries and museums.

This past week has seen Lucy Guerin Inc celebrating 21 years of choreographic practice at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA).

Last year Shelley Lasica presented the first iteration of WHEN I AM NOT THERE at the Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA) and it will be reimagined at the Art Gallery of NSW (AGNSW) from 22 May.
