Bill T. Jones / Keith Haring

Went to the Pop Life exhibition at Tate Modern today, which included a recreation of Keith Haring's Pop Shop, complete with awesome 80s rap soundtrack. The room included a tee-shirt with this visual on it: choreographer Bill T. Jones body painted by Haring. Pretty strong! (Photograph by Tseng Kwong Chi)

A little quote

'[Dancing] gives you nothing back, no manuscripts to store away, no paintings to show on walls and maybe hang in museums, no poems to be printed and sold, nothing but that single fleeting moment when you feel alive' - Merce Cunningham

Of course in the case of Cunnigham it gave him more than that (a career, to start with!), but this is quite poetic and true I think, so deserves being read.
