- What’s On
The video installation MC9, including clips from 21 collaborations between filmmaker Charles Atlas and choreographer Merce Cunningham, is site-specifically composed for SALT. Atlas will give also give a talk about the work and his practice at 19.00 on March 7 at SALT Beyoğlu.
Atlas is filmmaker, video artist and pioneer of media-dance, also called dance for camera. The late Merce Cunningham was an American dancer and choreographer who was at the forefront of the American avant-garde for more than 50 years. MC9 (2012) is a nine-channel synchronised video work with sound and encompasses the entire 40-year collaborative working relationship between these two visionary artists. In MC9, Atlas revisits and reconfigures scenes from such well-known media dances such as Fractions (1978), Locale (1980), Channels/Inserts (1981) and Ocean (2011), amongst others.
