An Upcoming Book Continues Celebrations of Meredith Monk’s 80th

February 28, 2024

Meredith Monk. Calling, a new book on Monk’s life and art, will be published as part of the ongoing celebrations of the seminal dance artist’s 80th birthday last year.

Edited by Anna Schneider and featuring contributions by a slew of top scholars, as well as collaborators and artists who have been inspired by Monk’s work, the book includes photography, drawings, notations, conversations with the artist, and previously unpublished archival material.

Its release is in conjunction with a career-encompassing exhibition by the same name currently on view at Munich, Germany’s Haus der Kunst and at Oude Kerk Amsterdam, together making up the first all-inclusive deep dive into Monk’s multifaceted and multidisciplinary work. The exhibitions run until March 3 in Munich and April 14 in Amsterdam, and the book, which will feature photos from the exhibition, is currently slated for release in May.
