In conjunction with the Contact Warhol: Photography without End exhibition, join us for an evening exploring the rich collaboration between the artists Andy Warhol and Merce Cunningham. A screening of the film of Cunningham's dance piece RainForest(1968), which incorporated Warhol's "Silver Clouds," helium-inflated mylar balloons that work as reflective mirrors and climate barometers on stage, will be followed by a performance demonstration by former Merce Cunningham Dance Company member Silas Riener. A panel organized and led by Professor Peggy Phelan, the Denning Family Director of the Stanford Arts Institute and "Contact Warhol" exhibition co-curator, will follow.
