RSVP here:

Working at the intersections of sculpture, drawing, and dance, Lauren Bakst & Yuri Masnyj have been building a shared practice since 2014. In Temporary Walls, a new installation and performance work made specifically for SculptureCenter's basement, Bakst and Masnyj continue their consideration of interior space as a stage. Temporary Walls draws on and reconfigures a lexicon of abstracted actions, objects, and language in order to dislocate assumptions of function and form.

Performance schedule:
January 28 at 5:30pm
February 11 at 3pm
