As well as being a prolific choreographer, Trisha Brown is an accomplished visual artist whose drawings have been seen in exhibitions, galleries, and museums throughout the world, including : White Cube (London, 2003), Documenta 12 (Kassel, 2007), Biennale de Venise (2009)...

The Walker Art Center of Minneapolis presented in 2008 The Year of Trisha, seamlessly melding her visual artwork with dance. The year of events featured Ms. Brown’s works on paper in an exhibit titled, Trisha Brown: So That the Audience Does Not Know Whether I have Stopped Dancing.

Providing an in-depth look at the visual arts practice of an artist recognized primarily for her work in dance and opera, the exhibition at macLYON features a survey on more than three decades of Brown’s drawings and videos of seminal early performances.

This exhibition acts in concert with the Biennale de la Danse which takes place from September, 9th to October, 3rd, 2010 and presents the Early Works and a Trisha Brown Night on Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th of September at 8.30 pm at the Transbordeur.
