Artist, choreographer, and dancer Simone Forti is a pivotal figure in both postmodern dance and minimalist art. Through such works as the celebrated Dance Constructions, which incorporated minimalist objects made of plywood and ropes, she has created radically new ways of looking at dance, approaches that continue to be influential today.
           
This book documents nearly two hundred of Forti’s works, using more than five hundred color images that represent the incredible diversity of her output. Showcasing her work across holograms, drawings, sound, video, and live performance, the book documents her incredible career and makes a case for the unprecedented nature of her achievement.
