    New York-based artist Polly Apfelbaum’s work has situated itself as a hybrid of painting, sculpture, and installation over a career spanning 30 plus years. Exploring the intricacies of color, Apfelbaum weaves her way, both literally and conceptually, through ideas of Minimalism, Pop aesthetics, and Color Field painting to blur the lines between two and three dimensional art making.

Bauhaus Dances, 1986 presented by Debra McCall
Sunday, February 7, 4pm, Otis Forum, Free
Performing the Grid artist Debra McCall screens the 1986 film of her reconstructions of Oskar Schlemmer's 1920s Bauhaus Dances in their entirety and describes her process of rediscovering the original notes and sketches, visiting the Bauhaus in East Germany and reconstructing the pieces with the help of Ise Gropius and Andreas Weininger, the last remaining performer from the original Bauhaus Stage Workshop. Hailed by the New York Times as a “tour de force” of research and performance and as “prophetic,” the dances premiered at The Kitchen in New York in 1982 and The Solomon R Guggenheim Museum in conjunction with a Kandinsky exhibition in 1984. After sold-out tours of the US, Europe and Japan, McCall's reconstructions returned to the original Dessau Bauhaus in 1994, presenting the dances on that stage for the first time in sixty-five years.
