For those in New York, don't miss Ch'u Mayaa, a modern dance piece filmed at FLW's Hollyhock. Beautiful cinematography!

Ch'u Mayaa, 2017
HD single-channel digital video, color, sound, 17:56 min

Choreography/Performer: Crystal Sepúlveda; Cinematography: Jeremy Glaholt.
Originally commissioned by the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs for the exhibition Condemned to be Modern as part of Getty Foundation’s Pacific Standard Time:LA/LA.

Ch’u Mayaa responds to the overlooked influence of Mayan architecture on Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House by re-appropriating the building as a temple, and imbuing it with a dance performance based on gestures and postures found in ancient Mayan pottery and murals. Through the movement of a female dancer the house is re-signified as belonging to Pre-Columbian Mesoamerican architecture lineage.

The title, translated as "Maya Blue," refers to the ancient azure pigment found in Mayan pottery and murals, well known for being remarkably weather resistant and enduring the passage of time.

Also for those interested, Tony Smith's Moondog is now on display in the sculpture garden of MOMA (this is the first time in ~20 years that a major piece of his has been displayed there).
