The Body and Expanded Cinema

Part of Merce Cunningham: Common Time, Merce Cunningham Across Media

Delve deeply into the world of expanded cinema and dance for camera with a screening of avant-garde films related to Merce Cunningham’s work with technology, including the premiere of rare works by Stan VanDerBeek.

A conversation follows between Gloria Sutton, professor of art history and media studies at Northeastern University, and John Kim, professor of media and cultural studies at Macalester College.


Merce Cunningham: Common Time is organized by the Walker Art Center. Lead support for the project is provided by the Barnett and Annalee Newman Foundation and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Generous support is also provided by Agnes Gund and the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation.

Major support for the Walker’s commissions and presentation is provided by the William and Nadine McGuire Commissioning Fund, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

Additional support is generously provided by Molly Davies, the Goodale Family Foundation, the HRK Foundation, Pamela and C. Richard Kramlich, Leni and David Moore, Jr./The David and Leni Moore Family Foundation, Linda and Larry Perlman, Barbara Pine, the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, and the Unity Avenue Foundation in memory of Sage and John Cowles.
