DANCE NEWS: Danspace Project's Archival Platform Journals & Catalogues Are Now Available as FREE PDFs!
In conceptualizing Platform 2021: The Dream of the Audience, Danspace Project’s Executive Director & Chief Curator, Judy Hussie-Taylor, invited Ishmael Houston-Jones, Eiko Otake, Okwui Okpokwasili, and Reggie Wilson to create new digital works. Platform 2021 builds on these artists' legacies as past Platform curators, traces of which can be found in their accompanying Platform catalogues -- now available on our website as Free PDFs! Links to read are below!
Hussie-Taylor launched the Platform series in 2010 as a new way of presenting dance in New York City and bringing the ideas of choreographers to the fore. Since 2015, the Platforms have grown in tandem with our Online Journal and the print catalogues, illuminating the dialogues that shape the Platforms.
Visit our Online Journal: Issue 12 to learn more about the history of our catalogues and the Journal itself. We'll be posting special Danspace archival footage of the artists' past work and Platforms every Monday of the Platform!
