Catherine Wood is Senior Curator in International Art (Performance) at Tate. As part of Arts Catalyst’s season, 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering Revisited, 1966/2016 and Afterall’s research strand in Exhibition Histories, Catherine will host an evening of screenings, showing films of Robert Rauschenberg’s Open Score and Yvonne Rainer’s Carriage Discreteness, both works produced as part of 9 Evenings: Theater and Engineering in 1966. The screenings will be followed by an informal talk from Wood reading both pieces as well as the broader practice of Rauschenberg and Rainer within the context of dance.

Catherine has an ongoing interest and in-depth knowledge on both Robert Rauschenberg and Yvonne Rainer’s artists' practice, having curated the critically acclaimed retrospective Yvonne Rainer: Dance Works at Raven Row in 2014 and as co-curator of the forthcoming Robert Rachenberg Retrospective at Tate Modern, opening in December 2016.
