Enjoy of an evening of outdoor dancing and fancy drinks during summer series event,
Cocktails at Cooper Hewitt Museum. Artichoke Dance will be presenting Visioning Bodies at
the Arthur Ross Terrace and Garden (adjacent to the museum).
Thursday, July 25th 6:00–9:00 p.m.
Arrive at 5 p.m. for a complimentary curator-led tour of our exhibition Nature.
Visioning Bodies, a contemporary folk dance for a resilient future, creates a way of existing in place, time, and energy that models co-created and interconnected systems. Inspired by working along the Los Angeles River, Visioning Bodies reflects on the complexities of nature in urban settings and the desire to both control and preserve nature. Visioning Bodies will move throughout the Cooper Hewitt garden, as well as around and in the sculpture entitled Petrified River, installed in the garden.
