Hall of States
New York City Ballet Art Series Installation Dustin Yellin's PsychogeographiesThursday, April 1 - Sunday, April 26, 2015 Hall of States, 10 a.m. - Building Closing To complement this season's performances, the Kennedy Center is bringing Dustin Yellin's 2015 New York City Ballet Art Series Installation to the Hall of States, featuring 12 works created as part of an ongoing project that when finished will consist of 100 large-scale glass and mixed-media sculptures each weighing more than 3,000 pounds. Yellin calls the sculptures, which resemble multi-dimensional human forms encapsulated in suspended animation, Psychogeographies, as they feel like maps of the psyche. Yellin developed these 12, taking inspiration from the New York City Ballet dancers after spending time with the company in the dance studio. Dustin Yellin is a Brooklyn-based artist and founder of Red Hook's Pioneer Works. Yellin's body of work, which includes paintings, drawings, installation, performance and sculpture, has been exhibited in numerous museums and galleries in New York, as well as internationally.
