Patsy Tarr

Patsy Tarr is the Founder and President of the 2wice Arts Foundation. Prior to starting the Foundation in 1988 she served as Board Chair of the following dance organizations: Nikolais/Louis Dance Foundation, Trisha Brown Dance Company, David Gordon Pickup Company, Dance Theater Workshop, Cunningham Dance Foundation. These organizations faced similar challenges of support and visibility and Ms. Tarr thought perhaps the creation of a high level dance magazine would benefit the field in addressing these issues.

Abbott Miller

Abbott Miller leads the design and creative direction of 2wice Arts Foundation projects, beginning with his work on Dance Ink, then serving as editor and designer of 2wice, as well as designing numerous books, exhibitions, and apps. The Foundation’s projects are a creative platform for collaborations with a wide range of performers, choreographers, composers, and photographers, resulting in a body of work that explores dance, choreography, performance, photography, art and design.

Abbott’s work includes identity, books, exhibitions, environmental graphics and digital media. His first studio Design/Writing/Research focused on editorial and design projects. In 1999 he joined the international design consultancy Pentagram where he has worked at the intersection of art, architecture, performance, and identity. Abbott’s work has been acknowledged with numerous awards and is represented in the design collections of several museums; he is the author of several books, including a monograph Abbott Miller: Design and Content (2014). He is the recipient of the American Institute of Graphic Arts National Medal, and is a member of the Alliance Graphique Internationale.
