Movement Research
movement research is one of the world's leading laboratories for the investigation of dance and movement-based forms. Valuing the individual artist and their creative process and vital role within society, Movement Research is dedicated to the creation and implementation of free and low-cost programs that nurture and instigate discourse and experimentation. Movement Research strives to reflect the cultural, political and economic diversity of its moving community, including artists and audiences alike.

This is a movement research studies project titled “Curatorial approaches to presenting Time-Based Art,” Moderated by Sam Miller (Founder, ICPP and President, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council). Panelists included Doryun Chong (Faculty, ICPP and Curator, MoMA) Judy Hussie-Taylor (Faculty, ICPP and Executive Director, Danspace Project), Jaamil Kosoko (Student, ICPP and Artist based in Philadelphia), and Ben Pryor (Student, ICPP and Curator/Producer based in New York). This event took place at Gibney Dance Center, January 18, 2012.


Faculty and students from the Institute for Curatorial Practice in Performance (or the ICPP) at Wesleyan University engaged in a discussion about curatorial approaches to presenting time-based art. Founded in 2010, the ICPP brings together artists, curators, scholars, presenters and cultural leaders for an intensive, nine-month, low-residency academic program with instructors from Wesleyan, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Danspace Project, and the Walker Art Center. 


Studies Project is an artist-curated series of panel discussions, performances, and/or other formats that focus on provocative and timely issues of aesthetics and philosophy in the intersection of dance and social politics, confronting and instigated by the dance and performance community.
