slow_angle_walk_beckett_walkJanet Kraynak will be speaking on a panel discussion at Crossing the Line: Drawing and Its Extension, a half-day symposium occurring in conjunction with MoMA‘s current exhibition, On Line: Drawing Through the Twentieth Century.

The symposium will explore the evolution of the line throughout the 20th century.  In the panel discussion, “The Performative Line,” Professor Kraynak will discuss the line as choreographic score in relation to Bruce Nauman’s video and drawing, entitled “Slow Angle Walk/ Beckett Walk” (1968-69).  Moderated by Connie Butler, MoMA’s Robert Lehman Foundation Chief Curator of Drawings and co-curator of the exhibition, the panel discussion will also include Benjamin Buchloh, Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Modern Art, Harvard University; Ralph Lemon, artist and choreographer; and Nick Kaye, Dean, College of Humanities & Chair in Performance Studies, College of Humanities, University of Exeter, England.
