Nick Mauss: Transmissions

Artist Nick Mauss prepares for his upcoming exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Opening March 16, 2018, Nick Mauss: Transmissions explores the history of American modernist ballet, continuing a hybrid mode of working he has pursued for a decade in which the roles of curator, artist, scholar, and performer converge. New works by Mauss—ranging from scores for a ballet to scenic design, décor elements, and live performance—will appear alongside pieces from the Whitney’s collection and those of other institutions. Central to the exhibition is a ballet conceived by Mauss in close collaboration with dancers, in response to archival material and the constellation of objects in the show.
