On view through March 21, 2010, Dance with Camera brings together works on film, video and still photography to investigate the crossover between artists and dancers. The items exhibited begins in the 1960s, with work by Bruce Conner and Bruce Nauman. Dance with Camera then explores how video artists of the 1960s took to dance as a subject.

Through all, documenting dance is never the primary concern. The artists presented capture movement, shape, and the dynamism of dance. The synergy between artistic medium is strong, the balance of still and video helpful in setting a cohesive tone for the exhibition.

ICA Philadelphia is located at 118 S. 36th Street, Philadelphia, PA.
