Descripción del Artista

She trained as a dancer in New York at the Martha Graham Dance School and the Merce Cunningham Dance Company and began to choreograph in 1960. She was a founding member of the Judson Dance Theater, a movement that began in 1962 and proved to be a vital force in redefining dance for the following decades. Starting in 1968, Rainer began to integrate short films into her live performances and, by 1975, had made a complete transition to filmmaking. She has since completed seven experimental feature films, and, in 1997, retrospectives of Rainer s films were held at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York City. In 2000, Rainer returned to dance after a 30-year hiatus with a commission by the Baryshnikov Dance Foundation for the White Oak Dance Project titled, After Many a Summer Dies the Swan (2000). Most recently, she choreographed AG Indexical, with a Little Help from H.M. (2006), a reinterpretation of George Balanchine s Agon; RoS Indexical (2007), after Vaslav Nijinsky s Rite of Spring; and Spiraling Down (2008), a meditation on soccer, aging, and war. In 2010, Yvonne Rainer: Dance and Film, the first major European survey of Rainer s work was presented at the Tramway in Glasgow, Scotland. A premiere collection of Yvonne Rainer s poetry, Poems is newly released by Badlands Unlimited (2011). Rainer is the recipient of numerous awards, including two Guggenheim Fellowships (1969, 1988), three Rockefeller Fellowships (1988, 1990, and 1996), a MacArthur Fellowship (1990?95), and a Wexner Prize (1995). She currently lives and works in California and New York.
