TRANSMISSIONS, an exhibition by Nick Mauss “exploring the relationship between modernist ballet and the avant-garde visual arts in New York from the 1930s through ’50s” is up at the Whitney through mid-May.*

Works by Mauss—as well as archival photographs, drawings, sculptures, paintings, film, and video—are supplemented by daily dance performances in conversation with the show’s display.
