ISABEL LEWIS: 21ST CENTURY RITUAL
SCENOGRAPHY AND DIRECTION
BMW Tate Live Exhibition: Ten Days Six Nights was defined by Tate Modern as an event that "marks a new departure in the concept of the art exhibition: from a static presentation to an experience of art that unfolds through time."
Isabel Lewis proposal was a version of the "Occasions", events with music and dance that creates a free environment to be and experience interaction among people.
Isabel Lewis (b. 1981, Dominican Republic) is an artist of Dominican and American origin who grew up on a suburban island off the coast of southwest Florida. Whilst living in New York, Lewis danced for many choreographers and from 2004 exhibited commissioned works at The Kitchen, Dance Theater Workshop, New Museum and Movement Research at Judson Church, amongst others. Lewis moved to Berlin in 2009, where she spent the next two years working as an editor and DJ, before creating her solo show STRANGE ACTION (2010). Isabel draws from her training in literary criticism, dance, and choreography as well as from party and popular culture.
