Choreographer and interdisciplinary artist Ralph Lemon references his 2014 Walker performance exhibition Scaffold Room with a free event—what the artist refers to as a “memory refraction”—one year after the work’s premiere.
Following a brief afterword by Museum of Modern Art associate curator Thomas J. Lax, audience members are invited to join the artist for a reception in Gather restaurant.
Lemon, who began his career as a dancer and choreographer, is now seen as a critical figure exploring intersections between performing and contemporary art worlds. The artist has had eight increasingly interdisciplinary works supported by the Walker over the course of 17 years, and recent projects at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Studio Museum in Harlem, and various other international museums.
