2wice As Nice

We’ve been big fans of Abbott Miller‘s designs for 2wice magazine for a long time here at CR, so we can heartily recommend a new exhibition of back issues at AIGA in New York that also features another balletomane favourite, Dance Ink

The exhibition, titled Everybody Dance Now: 20 Years of Dancing in Print which was also designed by Miller, features the magazines’ collaborations with many of the world’s most innovative dancers, choreographers, and photographers.


Dance Ink, Summer 1996 issue

A press release explains that “Dance Ink was conceived by its publisher Patsy Tarr as an alternative performance space, one that had the advantage of becoming a physical record of this most ephemeral art form. 2wice, its successor, continues in this tradition with a focus on editions that use the medium of print to evoke the tactile, visual and temporal qualities of performance.”

As well as the publications, books, photographs, posters and artifacts related to the production of the magazines are also on show.

Everybody Dance Now: 20 Years of Dancing in Print is at AIGA, 164 Fifth Avenue between 21st and 22nd Streets, New York City until May 15


Animal issue, Summer 1993


The Summer 2005 issue featured costumes by the artist Robert Rauschenberg


Dance Ink, Fall 1994 issue


Interiors, the second issue of 2wice, from Winter 1998

John, Paul, George and Jingo

When you think of Britain does a wave of images, sentimental, yet faintly militaristic, rush through your brain? Do soldiers, barrel-rolling Spitfires, smiling farmers and Eric Morecambe pass in tight formation before your mind’s eye? And tell me, these pictures, where did they come from?
