A one-hour program of experimental shorts. Fred Camper describes Bruce Nauman's Dance of Exercise on the Perimeter of a Square (1971) as a “highly repetitious but deeply meditative study of movement . . . for 11 minutes Nauman slowly dances to a metronome sound along each of four edges of a square on a studio floor, his actions as mechanical as he can make them, and the effect is to make the viewer vaguely uneasy about his own body.” On the same program: Richard Serra's Hand Catching Lead (1968) and Hands Scaping (1971), Robert Morris's Neo-Classic (1971), and Valley Curtain (1973) by David Maysles, Albert Maysles, and Christo.
