The Brooklyn artist Dustin Yellin will create a large-scale theater installation for the latest installment of New York City Ballet’s art series, in which the company teams up with a contemporary visual artist to create original works to be shown at the David H. Koch Theater. Yellin, the founder of Pioneer Works in Red Hook, will display 15 glass-and-mixed media sculptures—part of a larger, ongoing project he calls “Psychogeographies,” or maps of the psyche—that feature 100 glass and mixed-media sculptures. Imagine bodies trapped in glass. “I make window sandwiches,” he explains.

.

The promising installation will be on display during the company’s season from January 20 through March 1. There will also be three special Art Series performances: February 12, 19 and 27. Tickets are just $29, and audience members at these shows will receive a limited-edition takeaway created especially for the occasion by Yellin.
