Videodance: Works from the Centre Pompidou

The crème de la crème of international contemporary art + dance films was featured in Videodance: works from the Centre Pompidou. The Center Pompidou (Paris, France) is a pioneer in commissioning visual artists to work with choreographers to produce a new work for the Pompidou’s annual festival titled Vidéodanse. For the first time in the US, these important video works spanning a 25 year history of collaborations between contemporary dance, movement, and visual art with film and video were shown. Videodance consists of a careful selection of video works made by artists from the United States and Europe between 1978 and 2008 presented by the Centre Pompidou. From April to June, the Pompidou Museum becomes alive with public screenings featuring hundreds of films made in collaboration between choreographers, dancers, film makers and video artists. The Art Center featured over 30 works chosen by Michéle Bargue, Vidéodanse curator, and screened in their entirety in a black box gallery.

Pina Bausch, Merce Cunningham, William Forsythe, Anna Halprin, Charles Atlas, John Baldessari, Mona Hatoum, and Isaac Julien were just some of the many artists included in this ambitious program. Videodance was organized in collaboration with the Centre Pompidou Paris France, the cultural services of the French Consulate in Chicago and the Hyde Park Art Center.

The Videodance program had been arranged chronological order in four parts. Each week featured a separate program of works shown daily beginning at noon in the given order. Private viewing of works were available by appointment Monday through Friday, 9:30 am – 11:45 pm. In addition, the artworks were featured in an excerpted format on the Jackman Goldwasser Catwalk Gallery daily from 8:00 – 10:00 pm.
