WHO CARES? Dance in the Gallery & Museum is a new publication created by Sara Wookey in collaboration with Siobhan Davies Dance.
The publication includes a series of conversations with dance artists, curators and directors, who share their experiences of presenting or performing dance in museum and gallery spaces. Its purpose is to offer a platform of individual voices that as a collection renders visible shared and differing perspectives, value systems and ideologies about movement-based practices within visual art-focused cultural spaces.
Prompting thinking about the notion of “care” for the human body, artworks, objects and architecture in a common space and who might serve those needs, the publication invites strategies for best practice for a sustainable future of this renewed meeting of dance practices and visual art institutions.
