Alex Katz's long-standing fascination with dance and collaborations with renowned writers and choreographers has yielded some of his most complex compositions.
Since Alex Katz first painted the Paul Taylor in 1959, he has invited dancers to model for him. Dance, according to the artist, belongs to the same "long tradition of gestures" as painting. This publication is the first to examine the many decades of Katz's work for the stage, including the ways that he introduced tenets of postwar painting into theater and dance aesthetics.
Among Katz's most celebrated sets is the ensemble of cutouts he created for Kenneth Koch's 1961 production, George Washington Crossing the Delaware. Katz heightened the absurdity of the Revolutionary War-inspired play with Pop-adjacent figures and props. This publication brings together paintings, sketches, costumes, photographs, film stills, and ephemera. Newly-commissioned essays, unpublished materials, and major paintings will provide an overview of Katz's working relationships with individual choreographers and shed new light on avant-garde collaborations in New York between the 1960s and 80s.
