The exuberance, romance, and beauty of dance are central themes in this exhibition of historical and contemporary works from BAMPFA’s collection. The selection is wide ranging, including prints, drawings, and photographs from the United States, Europe, and Asia. Among the highlights are two classic photographs of José Limón and Martha Graham by Barbara Morgan; George Bellows’s raucous image Dance in a Madhouse; a recently acquired drawing by Berkeley native Ariel Parkinson; and several rare Japanese prints depicting dance ceremonies and rituals. The exhibition complements a season of dance programming in the Full series of performances, which takes place in the museum on the evening of every full moon.
