No Longer Showing.
Artist and choreographer Maria Hassabi will perform SOLO, her 2009 piece which she performs alone with a Persian carpet, arranging her movement as an investigation of ﬂuid sculptural process. The carpet—originally a grounding frame for the dance—becomes, variously, a prop object, an outer skin, and an architecture. These shifts describe the negotiation of desire in a dancing ﬁgure as it approaches visibility within the space of a given frame.
Solo will be performed in the second floor gallery, after the gallery closes at 6pm.
Please note that space is limited and admission is offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
Organized by Matthew Lyons with Alessandra Gomez as part of From Minimalism into Algorithm.
This exhibition is made possible with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, and in part by public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo. Persian rug generously provided by Yuval Levi at Elegante Oriental Rugs Inc.

This season is no exception, opening ...Read On
