New exhibition at Philadelphia Museum of Art, “Dancing Around the Bride,” links Marcel Duchamp, John Cage, Merce Cunningham, Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns: “I had asked Andy to design costumes to go with the pillows, but his only suggestion was for the dancers to be nude, an idea that had no appeal for Merce,” Mr. Johns said. “Merce showed me an old pair of his tights that were ripped and torn. I imitated these.” [NYT]
