2019 is a Centennial year of celebration of Merce Cunningham's birth. The Modern Dance Festival at the Modern will reflect on Cunningham’s work and his legacy as one of the most influential artists of the 20th Century.

Cunningham was known for his groundbreaking experiments in collaboration with artists from other disciplines. Cunningham’s conscious removal of his own personality in decision-making, left the experience of character, emotion, and story in his choreography to the experience of the viewer, which was complementary to the sensibilities and experiments of his contemporaries in the visual arts.

Some of his most notable collaborators are represented in the permanent collection of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, including Robert Rauschenberg, Frank Stella, and Andy Warhol. So it is most fitting that Contemporary Dance/Fort Worth’s 16th annual Modern Dance Festival at The Modern would tie-in to the international celebration of this seminal artist.

Within a 16-day window at The Modern, a variety of films, videos, lectures, “happenings” or “events,” and performances will be offered in the Grand Lobby, the Museum Auditorium, and Gallery 14. For a full schedule of events, go to the festival website.
