Dancing the Music: Philippa Cullen 1950-1975 | The McClelland Collection

18 Mar 2023 – 17 Jul 2023

Curated by Dr Stephen Jones

Philippa Cullen’s (1950–1975) brief but influential oeuvre enacted a new synergy between dance, contemporary art, performance, and technology. For her, dance was ‘a way of integrating with nature, as a reaction to a stimulus and as an extra activity, set apart from the bread and butter business … an act of rejoicing, more than a tool of communication.’
