Dance has become increasingly present in art galleries and museums, not simply in their events programmes, but in the form of videos, sets and live performance. How has dance and choreography shaped contemporary art? And why have dancers and artists sought to collaborate?

‘Introduction to Art and Dance' hosted by Frieze associate editor Paul Clinton will provide an accessible and critically insightful overview to key moments in the long history of collaboration between choreographers and contemporary artists, from Modernism to the present. Noted dance critic and lecturer Martin Hargreaves will cover such key moments as Oskar Schlemmer’s Bauhaus ballets Yvonne Rainer and the 1960s Judson Dance Theatre, Robert Rauschenberg's collaborations with Trisha Brown, through to the recent explorations of queer black dance form voguing, in the work of Rashaad Newsome. In the course of this he will focus on the relationship between dance and modernism, minimalism, pop art, as well as underground and street dance forms which have made their way into high culture.

Speaker
Martin Hargreaves is an Associate Lecturer in Fine Art at Goldsmiths and a Visiting Lecturer in New Performative Practices at DOCH, Stockholm. His research practices range between boredom and hysteria, covering the histories of contemporary dance, queer performance and camp misunderstandings.
