(c)ARBON


“Though dance has become prevalent in museums, it still often feels tacked on and unintegrated. Not so at the Met Breuer, where Andrea Miller’s new ‘(C)arbon’ is being presented in conjunction with “Like Life: Sculpture, Color and the Body (1300-Now),” ….In response to 127 representations of the human form, surely an artist who works with living bodies would have something to say. Ms. Miller does, and not just in the sense that any choreographer would.”
The New York Times

 

Gallim's Artistic Director Andrea Miller closed 2018 as Met Artist-in-Residence with (C)arbon, a three gallery performance installation of dance, film, sculpture and soundscape on the phenomenon of the body. Performed by six dancers, this anthropological study of the body dedicates each gallery to a state of the body's experience (individual, duel relations, and en masse). (C)arbon was exhibited in conjunction with The Met Breuer's exhibition, Like Life: Sculpture, Color, and the Body, examining 700 years of sculpture of the human body.
