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. 

The Whitney is offering free admission to furloughed Federal employees with appropriate ID.
