The Museum of Contemporary Art Denver (MCA Denver) presents a solo exhibition of acclaimed American artist Karen Kilimnik. Dance Rehearsal: Karen Kilimnik’s World of Ballet and Theatre continues Kilimnik’s longstanding fascination with classical and romantic story ballets and historical theatre. Dance Rehearsal will be on view at MCA Denver from March 2, 2013 through June 16, 2013.

Featuring over 30 works from the late-1980s to the present, Dance Rehearsal features Kilimnik’s many diverse styles and mediums – from figurative drawing to mixed media installations, collage, photography, and video, as well as more recent forays into set design and choreography. Throughout Kilimnik’s career she has reinterpreted sources ranging from fairy tales, mysteries, books, TV shows and ballets. The exhibition highlights her longstanding engagement with both Old Master paintings and the ballets of the 17th and early 19th-centuries. Her works reimagine historical figures and suggest parallels to contemporary pop culture.
