Merce Cunningham's 'Events' are performed throughout the duration of the exhibition by students and graduates from London Contemporary Dance School and dancers from Richard Alston Dance Company. Often considered the dance versions of Duchamp's 'readymades', performances are made up of sections taken from repertory pieces drawn from collaborations with Duchamp, Cage, Rauschenberg and Johns. Parreno's 'ghost dancers' can be heard as an integral part of the exhibition throughout the week.
