Will Rawls, 'Cursor' (Live Performance)

  • Hirshorn Museum & Sculpture Garden 700 Independence Avenue Southwest Washington, DC, 20591 United States (map)

'Cursor' muses on the computer cursor as a kind of body, describing the graphic as a “protagonist and expectant messenger,” with dance, writing, voice, and objects. As a choreographer, writer, and performer, Rawls frequently explores ideas of dance and blackness, ambiguity and abstraction.

This performance is part of "Does the body rule the mind, or does the mind rule the body?," the Museum’s first live performance exhibition, presenting the newest generation of American artists who blend the avant-garde legacy of performance art with pop culture.
