Interactive Exhibits and Installations (ADLI MiniFest 2013)

Granoff Center for the Creative Arts


The American Dance Legacy Initiation 2013 Mini-Fest installations take full advantage of the Granoff Center, Brown University's interdisciplinary arts center dedicated to fostering innovation, research, collaboration, creativity, and education among the arts, humanities, and sciences. The building was designed by the New York-based architecture firm, Diller Scofidio + Renfro. The exhibits will be situated throughout the building and provide new perspectives on viewing and experiencing dance.

Two of the Installations are inspired by the work of American dance pioneer and legend, José Limón (1908-1972), curated by students from Central Falls High School under the direction of their master teacher Deanna Camputaro and Emily McCartan, a Brown University Public Humanities graduate student. By combining photographs, video, text and choreography, the students share their personal connection to José Limón and his repertory. Cathedral, designed and curated by Brown dancer/choreographer, Alison Murphy, is an interactive exhibit of paintings by Professor of History Emeritus Tom Gleason, which he created after the onset of Parkinson's Disease. Viewers will have the opportunity to respond to the exhibit through text, sound, visual art, and movement. Cathedral, is presented in partnership with ASaP: Artists and Scientists as Partners. The final two installations showcase ADLI programs across the country.

These installations are curated by Brown Public Humanities graduate students.
