New York City Ballet will present the third installation of its acclaimed Art Series initiative during the Company’s 2015 Winter Season. Launched in 2013, the New York City Ballet Art Series features annual collaborations between NYCB and contemporary visual artists who create original works inspired by NYCB for exhibition at the Company’s home, the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center.
For the 2015 Art Series, NYCB has commissioned an installation from Dustin Yellin, the 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.

For the 2015 Art Series installation, Yellin will exhibit 15 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.

The installation will be on display from January 20 through March 1 during all of NYCB’s 2015 Winter Season performances. NYCB will also host free, open hours for the general public to view the exhibition on the following dates: Thursday, February 12 through Sunday, February 22 – Mondays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon; and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
In addition, NYCB will hold three special Art Series performances, which will take place on Thursday, February 12 (All Balanchine -- Serenade, Agon, and Symphony in C); Thursday, February 19 (Peter Martins’ Hallelujah Junction, Christopher Wheeldon’s A Place for Us, and Jerome Robbins’ Interplay and Glass Pieces); and Friday, February 27 (Alexei Ratmansky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, a new work by NYCB resident choreographer Justin Peck, and Christopher Wheeldon’s Mercurial Manoeuvres). Single tickets for the NYCB Art Series performances are priced at just $29 and will go on sale at noon on Monday, January 12, at nycballet.com, or by calling 212-496-0600. All audience members attending these three performances will also receive a special limited-edition takeaway created by Yellin to commemorate the NYCB Art Series collaboration.

Born in California and raised in Colorado, Dustin Yellin currently lives and works in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, where he founded Pioneer Works, a non-profit center for art and innovation, in 2010. Yellin is best known for his large-scale sculptural paintings that use multiple layers of glass, each individually embellished through a precise and painstaking process, to create an intricate, three- dimensional collage. His largest and most complex work, The Triptych, is a massive 12-ton, three-paneled epic that recalls the fantastic imagery of Hieronymous Bosch.

Pioneer Works Center for Art and Innovation, a vast three-story brick warehouse built in 1866 and first occupied by Pioneer Iron Works, is a 24,000 square-foot, multi-disciplinary center dedicated to the creation, synthesis and discussion of art, science and education. It has been called Yellin’s “Gesamtunsktwerk,” or total work, and Yellin himself has called it “a place where the community can grow out of and exchange ideas – where disciplines can cross, where you can have painters and sculptors, but also filmmakers and musicians and scientists, all under one roof.”

In its dramatic main exhibition space, Pioneer Works presents an extensive series of exhibitions, performances, lectures and educational programming. In addition, the Pioneer Works residency program grants free studio space to artists and scientists from a variety of fields.

Launched in 2013, the NYCB Art Series was designed to produce annual collaborations between contemporary visual artists and New York City Ballet in an effort to showcase and celebrate the visual arts during NYCB performances at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center. The first two installments of Art Series have featured acclaimed collaborations by FAILE (2013) and JR (2014). Through the use of non-traditional marketing, social media engagement, and specially priced tickets, the NYCB Art Series was also conceived to engage audiences new to NYCB, as well as to cross pollinate NYCB’s existing fans with those of the commissioned artists. During the first two years of Art Series, nearly 90% of single ticket buyers attending Art Series performances were new to NYCB.
In addition to NYCB’s unparalleled history of commissioning new work from numerous composers and choreographers, the Company also has a long tradition of working with visual artists such as Isamu Noguchi, Julian Schnabel, Francesco Clemente, Helen Frankenthaler, Roy Lichtenstein, Keith Haring, Santiago Calatrava, Per Kirkeby, and others, all of whom have created artworks and other visual elements for NYCB performances. The lobby of the David H. Koch Theater, which was built for NYCB and opened at Lincoln Center in 1964, also features a permanent collection that includes several landmark works of art, including Jasper Johns’ Numbers, Lee Bontecou’s Untitled Relief, and Elie Nadelman’s Two Female Nudes and Two Circus Women.
