Gibney Dance: Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center

For the inaugural exhibition at 280 Broadway, Gibney Dance seeks to broaden the definition of our motto to “make space for dance.”

During our recent expansion to a second location, we have been reshaping and restructuring physical space to create opportunities for artistic discovery in movement and performance.

Here, we give the same opportunity to artists working in visual media. In an open call for proposals, we asked artists: how does your work “make space” for kinesthetic relationships? How does it restructure, reframe, and reconsider space in relation to the body?

With roots in the minimalist sculpture and performance art of the 60s and 70s, Gibney Dance’s two-month-long exhibition welcomes seven contemporary artists working in film, video, sculpture, drawing, and printmaking.

We’re excited to see how their work complements and informs our dance dance and performance offerings.
