Peek Inside Nick Mauss' New "Transmissions" Exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art

This Spring, multidisciplinary artist Nick Mauss has his first solo museum exhibition in the United States at the Whitney Museum of American Art titled Transmissions, an exploration of the relationship between modernist ballet and the avant-garde visual arts in New York from the 1930s through ’50s.

Central to the exhibition is a daily performance by four dancers made in collaboration with Mauss as an interpretative reaction to the artworks and archival materials on display. Mauss cast dancers whose training includes ballet, though most have continued to practice in more contemporary forms. Their movements incorporate quotidian gestures and procedures from a dancer’s daily practice as well as a choreographed sequence that invokes ballet as it comes into tension with modern and contemporary techniques.

Catch "Transmissions" at the Whitney until May 14th, 2018.
