Notes: "William Forsythe is an internationally celebrated choreographer whose expansive and groundbreaking approach to his discipline has upended the rules of choreography and dance, inspiring and influencing countless other artists in the process. Since the early 1990s, parallel to his stage productions, Forsythe has developed instructions, installations, sculptures, and filmes that he calls 'choreographic objects.' These experimental works invite the viewer to confront and engage with the fundamental principles of choreography, thereby expanding Forsythe's choreographic explorations far beyond the stage and the purview of skilled professionals."--lower cover.

Published on the occasion of Forsythe's major exhibition at The Institute of Contemporary Art/ Boston, this landmark volume provides the first-ever comprehensive survey of the Choreographic Objects, a remarkable body of conceptual work that blurs the lines between performance, installation, sculpture, and video.
