Please join us at Danspace Project for an evening with artist Joan Jonas, dedicated to her major work Moving Off the Land, commissioned by TBA21–Academy. Jonas will be in conversation with curator Ute Meta Bauer, co-curator (with Paul C. Ha) of Jonas’s acclaimed installation and performance They Come to us Without a Word in the United States Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale (2015); Jonas’s long-term collaborator, marine biologist and CUNY professor David Gruber; TBA21 director Markus Reymann; and Danspace Project director Judy Hussie-Taylor.

Their conversation will explore the genesis of Moving Off the Land, the research at its heart, and the way the artist conjured an aquatic universe of nonhuman creatures, mythological figures and real characters that is informed by stories of beauty and ecological urgency. The speakers will also revisit Jonas’s iconic performance of Moving Off the Land, which had its US premiere at Danspace Project in 2018.
