This catalogue documents the Joan Jonas performance—The Shape, the Scent, the Feel of Things—which responds to German art historian Aby Warburg's essay about his visit to the American Southwest. It includes Jonas's artist statement, scene by scene descriptions with photos, a conversation between Joan Jonas and Jason Moran (who had composed music for the performance), and an essay by Lynne Cooke, curator of the Dia Art Foundation.
