Join us for a preview of Nick Mauss: Transmissions, which explores the history of American modernist ballet. This exhibition continues a hybrid mode of working Mauss has pursued for a decade in which the roles of curator, artist, choreographer, scholar, and performer converge. Focusing on New York’s role in a transatlantic exchange of ballet and surrealist aesthetics, the show presents a vision of American modernist ballet as an artistic catalyst, filter, and vibrant, shared vocabulary. Through the intertwined languages of ballet, painting, photography, and sculpture, Mauss also mines a pre-queer history within the realm of supposedly straight cultural production of the 1930s and 1940s.
