Andy Warhol & Merce Cunningham: Returning to RainForest
Join us for an evening exploring the rich collaboration between the artist Andy Warhol and choreographer Merce Cunningham, presented in conjunction with the Contact Warhol: Photography Without End exhibition at the Cantor Arts Center.
A screening of the film of Cunningham's dance piece RainForest (1968), which incorporated Warhol's "Silver Counds," helium-inflated mylar balloons that work as reflective mirrors and climate barometers on stage, will be followed by a performance demonstration by former Merce Cunningham Dance Company member Silas Riener. A panel organized and led by Professor Peggy Phelan, the Denning Family Director of the Stanford Arts Institute and "Contact Warhol" exhibition co-curator, will follow.
