Since their inception in 2008, Danspace Project’s Platforms have been a signature program. The Platforms are multi-week series of performances and events organized by guest-artist-curators and the Danspace curatorial team. The Platforms were conceived by Danspace Project Executive Director and Chief Curator Judy Hussie-Taylor as “exhibitions that unfold over time” and enact curation as a process of collaborative inquiries delving into artistic, choreographic, and curatorial concerns. Each Platform is accompanied by a print catalogue and, in recent years, an Online Journal issue
