This slide lecture, composed of historic photographs by Peter Moore, mines his remarkable archive for evidence of this inter-connectedness both within Judson Dance Theater itself and in relation to various artistic practices outside of the group proper.
Barbara Moore is an art historian, writer, and manager/curator of the Peter Moore archive. From the beginning she collaborated on organizing the archive’s performance component – now celebrating its 50th Anniversary parallel to that of JDT – and created its extensive accompanying research files. She is currently writing a book titled Observing the Avant-Garde: Peter Moore and the Photography of Performance.
