Nell Andrew's brilliant book, Moving Modernism, brings to life a major theme in 20th-century modernism, the role of dance, and bodily movement generally, in the larger adventure of artistic abstraction. Her scholarship is impeccable, her ability to reconstitute long-past performances by her major figures is formidable, and her overall project-to recover the force of kinesthetic sensation for modernism generally-could not be more relevant to the present moment. * Michael Fried, J.R. Herbert Boone Emeritus Professor of Humanities and the History of Art, Johns Hopkins University * Moving Modernism refigures our understanding of abstraction across the media of painting, dance, and cinema. By excavating the connections between visual forms and bodily perceptions, this book challenges us to value aspects of the spectatorial experience we typically disregard. * Juliet Bellow, Associate Professor of Art History, American University *
