In a collaboration between the Biennale Danza and The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles, the Biennale Danza 2023 presents the European opening of Simone Forti, an exhibition that explores the monumental career of this visionary artist.
Forti is perhaps best known as a choreographer, which the exhibition will highlight with performances of her ground-breaking Dance Constructions, featuring a cast of the Biennale College artists and creatives. At the same time, Forti can more expansively be understood as an artist who works with movement. Looking beyond the Dance Constructions, this exhibition surveys six decades of the artist’s incisive work, elucidating the breadth and depth of her practice through works on paper, videos, holograms, and performance ephemera and documentation.
Featuring work from the 1960s through to the present day, the exhibition is a homage to a towering artist who has forever reframed the dialogue between visual art and contemporary dance.
