Please join us on Thursday, August 18th at 6p.m.

Please join us in the gallery of Helen Day Art Center for an artist talk and video presentation by Polly Motley.

This event traces Motley's choreographic development from in front of the stage, highly trained and refined athleticism to her current focus on multimedia installation performances. Motley contextualizes the work with references to artists and art historical movements in video, installation and dance. She also discusses choreographic structures, processes of performance-making, and audience-performer relationships.


The artist and her work.

Polly Motley is a dancer and choreographer who has been making movement based performances with video since the 1980's. Her work has been presented in venues including the Asia Society, the Baryshnikov Art Center, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, Tulane University, and the Indonesian Dance Festival. Motley received a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Colorado, Boulder with a thesis on the interactive relationships of video and performance.
