A Choreographed Exhibition is an exhibit composed exclusively of movements. For a month and a half, three dancers assume the exhibition spaces and interpret choreographed movements, gestures, and behaviors, following the scores and instructions devised by seven artists from the fields of choreography, music, and visual art. In the absence of scenery, lighting or music, the choreography is set in an empty gallery, where the dancers command complete attention. In curator Mathieu Copeland’s exhibition, the perspective of the viewer is fundamentally changed: it is no longer revolves around a stationary object, but instead, moving subjects revolve around the viewer, assuming varying proximities to each spectator.
