Dance Theatre of Harlem: 40 Years of Firsts

December 20 - March 15
 
Highlighting Dance Theatre of Harlem’s 40-plus year history, this magnificent exhibition celebrates the history and art of dance with 25 costumes and accessories, set pieces, documentary video excerpts, historical photographs and tour posters; and includes four dramatically-staged ballets that are iconic to the company: A Streetcar Named Desire, Creole Giselle, Dougla and Firebird. Dispelling the belief that ballet could not be performed by those of African descent, Arthur Mitchell and Karel Shook founded the Dance Theatre of Harlem in 1969. It has since grown into a multi-cultural dance institution.

Beautiful and Obsolete: Obituaries for the Machine Age

New Work by Kay Gregg, October 18 - January 4
 
Painter and printmaker Kay Gregg explores a bygone era of gears and mechanics, replaced by chips and wires. She says, "The era of the movable part is nearly done. Our actions are devoid of mechanical interaction. In the past, the lever, the switch, the button, or the potentiometer provided an extension of our human activities and feedback about where we existed in the process at hand. Our finger pressed a key, a lever slapped a carbon coated ribbon, letters appeared on paper, and an artifact was created."
