Danspace Project has been invited by artist and MacArthur Foundation Fellowship recipient, Josiah McElheny, to participate in Madison Square Park Conservancy’s thirty-fourth exhibition, Prismatic Park.

Danspace Executive Director & Chief Curator, Judy Hussie-Taylor, has invited four dance artists to “inhabit” the Park to realize new commissions throughout the exhibition.

The project features three large sculptures of painted wood and prismatic glass on view in Madison Square Park from June 13, 2017 through October 8, 2017. The resident artists will create ambitious new work that summons the potential for imagination, creativity, and performance inspired by spontaneous audiences and chance encounters.

Danspace Project’s resident artists and dates are as follows:
Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener: June 20-25, 2017; June 27-July 2, 2017
Netta Yerushalmy: August 1-6, 2017; August 8-13, 2017
Jodi Melnick: September 12-17, 2017; September 19-24, 2017
