The Ronald Feldman Gallery will exhibit photographic portraits of choreographers and their dancers by Peggy Jarrell Kaplan. Selected from twenty-five years of work, the exhibition includes Merce Cunningham, Pina Bausch, Kazuo Ohno, William Forsythe, and, from a new generation, Boris Charmatz, Ann Liv Young, and Christopher Williams.

Kaplan’s collection, an historic archive of choreographers who have influenced the direction of international contemporary dance and an up-to-date record of emerging choreographers, includes postmodern dance from New York (the early Judson Church Theater and their heirs), dance and physical theater from Europe, butoh and new dance from Japan, and Eastern Europe performance.

Special events related to performance will take place at the Feldman Gallery in conjunction with the exhibition.
