May 27–October 12, 2014
At the Getty Research Institute, Getty Center

Dancer, choreographer, filmmaker, and writer Yvonne Rainer (American, b. 1934) is one of the most influential artistic figures of the last 50 years, a standout across multiple disciplines: dance, cinema, minimalism, conceptual art, feminist art, and postmodernism.

Drawn largely from Rainer’s archive at the Getty Research Institute (GRI), Yvonne Rainer: Dances and Films, a monographic exhibition on view at the Getty Center from May 27-October 12, 2014, will survey her major dance and performance works through a lively array of photographs, scores, journals, ephemera, and audiovisual presentations, and will present a complete retrospective of the artist’s avant-garde films.
