Brendan Fernandes


Re/Form is an ambitious new monograph by artist Brendan Fernandes. Re/Form chronicles Fernandes recent exhibitions, “Contract and Release” at The Isamu Noguchi Museum, Long Island City, NY and, “The Master and Form” at The Graham Foundation, Chicago, IL and the 2019 Whitney Biennial, New York, NY. Both projects explored notions of discipline, mastery, and architecture to disrupt and recombine ballet and modern dance traditions. Together, they represented a decisive moment in Fernande’s practice that is archived and celebrated in this publication. Fernandes’s projects address issues of race, queer culture, migration, protest and other forms of collective movement in order to create spaces of solidarity.
