The Week Ahead: Jan 22 - Jan 28

By Roslyn Sulcas

The film and video maker MOLLY DAVIES is one of a slowly fading breed of downtown artists who came of creative age in the graffiti-covered, unfashionable SoHo of the late 1960’s, and she has worked with the best of that generation. Ms. Davies has always been interested in dance, and her current exhibition features a fascinating six-screen piece, “DAVID TUDOR’S OCEAN,” which documents three performances of the same work by the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. The focus is more on the composers – Mr. Tudor and Takehisa Kosugi – than the dancers, but it’s a compelling and extensive look at the fabric of an artwork. Also on show is the premiere of “Desire,” with text by the poet Anne Carson. Through Feb. 18, Zone: Chelsea Center for the Arts, 601 West 26th Street, (212) 255-2177.
