We’re thrilled to share that the Blanton’s current exhibition, Perception Unfolds: Looking at Deborah Hay’s Dance, was recently the subject of an Arts in Context episode. An Emmy-winning arts documentary series exploring the process of creation, Arts In Context is produced by Austin’s PBS affiliate KLRU, and is syndicated in national markets including New York, Boston, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia.
The series’ April 24 episode spotlighted the Blanton’s current exhibition and examined Deborah Hay’s creative process surrounding her modern dance choreography. Through interviews with Hay, Blanton staff and others, it underscored how Hay has challenged, for decades, the dance world’s expectations and assumptions while creating pieces that enthrall and entertain.
Watch the trailer for Perception Unfolds below, then head over to KLRU’s website to watch the episode in its entirety. The exhibition is in its final days and closes May 18, so make sure to visit the Blanton to experience this groundbreaking show that CultureMap Austin calls a “kinetic, sensual experience.”
