We're saddened to hear of the passing of Trisha Brown – maverick Postmodern dancer and visual artist – at age 80.
Brown arrived in New York in 1961 and quickly became the city’s avant garde ‘It’ girl. In 1970 she founded the Trisha Brown Dance Company, which is still exploring intersections of dance, performance and art. Through repetitive, distilled movements, Brown pushed the limits of choreography: flirting with gravity, rigorously playing with physicality and collaborating with artists including Robert Rauschenberg and Vija Celmins.

It is with great sorrow that we share the news that artist Trisha Brown died on March 18th in San Antonio, Texas, after a lengthy illness. One of the most acclaimed and influential choreographers and dancers of her time, Trisha’s groundbreaking work forever changed the landscape of art.
She will be missed by all.
