From My Heart to You
Dance and the Unifying Force of Social Consciousness 

Feb 3 - May 1, 2022

This Dialogue with a Collection exhibition is co-curated with Aston McCullough, Assistant Professor, Department of Music & Dance. From my heart to you explores how dance can connect, tell stories, heal, and raise social consciousness. It celebrates the remarkable Pearl Primus (Nov 29, 1919 – Oct 29, 1994), a pioneer of Black dance and an anthropologist, choreographer, and UMass professor. The exhibition includes works from the UMCA collection by Lucinda Childs and Barbara Morgan, and additional works on loan by Richard Yarde, Trisha Brown, and others.
