Sharon Lockhart / Noa Eshkol

Presented by Rose Art Museum
Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University 415 South Street , Waltham

In this multi-channel film installation, Los Angeles-based artist Sharon Lockhart explores the extraordinary choreography of Noa Eshkol (1924–2007), the Israeli dance composer, theorist, and textile artist whose achievements include the development in the 1950s of a revolutionary dance notation system that categorized movements of the body through numbers and symbols. Although the two women never met—Lockhart only discovered Eshkol’s work during a 2008 trip to Israel—the project is conceived as a two-person exhibition, highlighting a fascinating artistic convergence between past and present, as a contemporary artist activates the work of a modernist composer through her archive.
