A comprehensive exhibition, originating at LACMA and traveling on to Vienna’s Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary and the New York Jewish Museum, showcased Los Angeles–based artist Sharon Lockhart’s multimedia meditation in conversation with the late Israeli dancer and choreographer Noa Eshkol. Eshkol is best known for developing the Eshkol-Wachman Movement Notation system in the 1950s, which uses a combination of symbols and numbers to define the motion of any limb around its joint. Lockhart’s images capture Eshkol’s students in performance, bringing her visionary choreographic work to light. The book features installation photographs, film stills, archival material and wall carpets by Eshkol. Texts by Walead Beshty, Ramsay Burt, Ifat Finkelman, Noémie Solomon and Eva Wilson, among others.
