Ali Smith on Michael Clark

To celebrate our return to the Barbican stage this month, the acclaimed author, playwright and journalist Ali Smith shares her thoughts on Michael Clark's latest work in the Barbican October Guide

"As the night’s three works fuse together the piece shifts from uncompromised mourning to an expansiveness, a gesture against the odds, open possibility up against the dark, an end that makes you want things never to end, a sheer anarchic momentary rite of joy."

Read the piece in full on the Barbican blog now.

Michael Clark Book Launch, New York

Sunday 30 October, 6:30- 7:30pm,
Artists Space, New York
 
This event launches the first monograph on Michael Clark, celebrating the whole of his career to date, from the late 70s to the present. Rich in visual and archival material, it contains new essays on Clark's work, photography by Hugo Glendinning, Richard Haughton, Nick Knight, and others, plus interviews with many of Clark's collaborators from the worlds of dance, art, fashion and music.
 
"The aesthetics, style, creativity and temper of extreme subcultural lifestyle would…become a vital aspect of Clark's work as a dancer and choreographer. Absurdist, confrontational, richly aesthetic and provocative – a Through-the-Looking-Glass sensibility, in which vulgarity, covert intellectualism, deliberate obscurantism and an uncompromising rigor were commingled…"
