V News: SIMONE FORTI ON THE MOVE
The legendary multidisciplinary creative takes center stage through riveting retrospective
If there’s a thread to be stitched between the body and the earth, then it’s Simone Forti who holds the needle. Known for a striking depth of movement in her six decades of choreography, the visual artist may best be represented by her Dance Constructions, sculpturist interpretations of the human form in synergy with assorted props—but that’s far from all.
Soon to grace the galleries of Los Angeles’ Museum of Contemporary Art is a sweeping account of Forti’s monumental career and dynamic work, transcending her famed Constructions. From video documentation to performance ephemera spanning 60 years, the exhibition is nothing less than the ultimate homage to a contemporary creative.
Simone Forti is on view at the Museum of Contemporary Art from January 15 through April 2, 2023.
