Los Angeles—The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) presents FRAMEWORK, a new series of three site-specific dance performances by L.A. Dance Project/Benjamin Millepied and Los Angeles artist Mark Bradford, in the galleries at MOCA Grand Avenue where The Painting Factory: Abstraction After Warhol is now on view. A collaborative performance by L.A. Dance Project/Benjamin Millepied and Los Angeles artist Mark Bradford July 19, August 2, and August 9 MOCA Grand Avenue. For this unique collaboration, Millepied will dance with Amanda Wells in the museum space on Rudolf Stingel’s Untitled (2007–2012), wall-to-wall carpeting installed specifically for the exhibition, accompanied by a soundtrack that includes narration by Bradford. This rare collaboration will add a new layer to the exhibition and explores the convergence of dance and painting, as Millepied adds his footprints to Stingel’s signature white carpet. “The opportunity to collaborate with Benjamin and Mark on this cross-disciplinary performance is very exciting,” said MOCA Director Jeffrey Deitch. “Framework extends the tradition of dance performance in art galleries and opens the boundaries between dance and painting.” Two large-scale paintings by Bradford, Untitled (2011) and Ghost and Stooges (2011), are presented as part of the exhibition and will serve as a focal point of the dance. The 30-minute performances will begin promptly at 7pm on Thursday, July 19; Thursday, August 2; and Thursday, August 9. Admission is free.
