essay If You Couldn’t See Me, Peter Eleey, 2014

While Trisha Brown is best known for her innovative choreographies, drawing has long featured prominently in her maverick practice, at once a tool for schematic composition and a component of her ongoing investigation into the limits of her own body. Written to accompany the artist’s 2008 Walker survey exhibition, this essay by curator Peter Eleey presents necessary historical and critical context for the artist’s signature work It’s a Draw – For Robert Rauschenberg (2008) and other works on paper in the Walker’s collection.
