LOIE FULLER and the Serpentine Dance

Related to Peter Wollen's Art & Fashion:Friends or Enemies, were a series of images about the various artistic movements during fin-de-siecle France, as well as the interwar and postwar years in Europe.

We looked at images of Loie Fuller, an American-born dancer, choreographer, performer and inventor, whose Serpentine Dance may have inspired modern dance movement spearheaded by women like Isadora Duncan. The Serpentine Dance was captured on film in 1896 by pioneering filmmakers Auguste and Louis Lumiere.
