Who Cares? Dance in the Gallery & Museum
Who Cares? Dance in the Gallery & Museum is a publication by dance artist and researcher Sara Wookey published by Siobhan Davies Dance. The publication consists of a series of conversations Wookey had 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 of voices - 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 thinking about strategies for best practice for a sustainable future of this renewed meeting of dance practices and visual art institutions.
