The Day of Dance at the Hessel Museum of Art is a collaboration between the artist Liam Gillick, the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, and the Dance Program at Bard College. The idea for the event was sparked by Liam Gillick’s Everyday Holidays project, which proposed a calendar of new holidays to be celebrated throughout the duration of his ongoing exhibition, From 199A to199B: Liam Gillick.
