[WATCH] Chalk Lines Drawn on MoMA Atrium Floor for Work/Travail/Arbeid Exhibit

Work/Travail/Arbeid is an exhibition from artist Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker at the Museum of Modern Art that asks and attempts to answer one question: Can choreography be performed in the form of an exhibition?

To answer that question, one of today's most important dancer/choreographers reimagined her stage performance Vortex Temporum (2013)—choreographed to the eponymous work by the late French composer Gérard Grisey—for a museum space, away from a conventional theater setting.

In this video from the museum, check out workers from de Keersmaeker's company Rosas setting up chalk lines on the Atrium floor. If you want to see Work/Travail/Arbeid, head to the museum now as the exhibition closes tomorrow, April 2nd.
