Reflecting on the dancer and theorist Rudolf Laban’s ideas related to effort and movement, Effort Ecomony features artists whose work utilizes choreography in some form. Movement and the body are essential to the works selected, with artists considering the design and sequencing of movement as it relates to dance, sports, daily life, eroticism, and more. Other ideas presented through this exhibition include internal rhythm and time as forces we connect our bodies to, and our drive for interconnectivity to one another in both the material and immaterial world.
