Eiko & Koma's catalogue published

The Walker Art Center published the first comprehensive monograph of Eiko & Koma's work. The 320-page catalogue—Eiko & Koma: Time Is Not Even, Space Is Not Empty— includes scholarly essays, an interview, and an illustrated and complete “catalogue of works” detailing each of their projects to date accompanied by reprints of primary materials; short essays on specific works; and a bibliography.  For more information, go to  Art Book.
Also see inside of the book.


It is edited by curator Joan Rothfuss, who succeeded in creating a catalogue that is "substantial without being fancy or precious." The catalogue includes texts by Philip Bither, Suzanne Carbonneau, Doryun Chong, Anna Halprin, André Lepecki, Sam Miller, Forrest Gander and Olga Viso, among others. Beautiful photo essays by Philip Trager and Jan Henle are also included along with hundreds of photos, making the book visually stunning.

"I cannot imagine a publication more representative of Eiko & Koma's work as artists and also emblematic of our goals for the Retrospective."  Sam Miller, the Retrospective Project Producer

"We [at the Walker] could not be happier with the outcome. It really is striking and impactful. It is most comprehensive and a tribute to Eiko & Koma's creative practice."  Olga Viso, Executive Director, Walker Art Center

"The catalogue burns with the stories your bodies give shape and rise to. It's an incandescent testimony." Carolyn D. "C. D." Wright, Poet
