Dustin Yellin’s glass installations for New York City Ballet’s Art Series

After FAILE and JR, it’s the turn of Brooklyn-based artist Dustin Yellin to participate in the third installation of New York City Ballet’s Art Series initiative that invites every year contemporary visual artists to create original works inspired by ballet. Yellin, who is also the founder of the Pioneer Works Center for Arts and Innovation, created for the occasion 15 large-scale glass and mixed-media sculptures, each weighing more than 3,000 pounds. The sculptures form part of “Pyschogeographies”, Yellin’s ongoing project that is meant to depict the maps of the psyche. The multilayered pieces are made of cutouts from books, newspapers and magazines, forming intricate, collage-like compositions that seem to be floating in space.

Installed at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center, the impressive sculptures pay homage to NYBC’s long tradition of artistic collaborations with icons like Andy Warhol, Keith Haring or Julian Schnabel, as well as to the contagious energy of its talented dancers. As NYCB informs, Dustin Yellin’s installations will remain on view during the Company’s 2015 Winter Season, from January 20 through March 1. Moreover, NYBC will hold three unique Art Series performances on February 12, 19 and 27. 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. For more information about Yellin’s installations, please check out the following video where the artist explains his inspirations.
