New York-based artist Norma Markley's most-recent solo installations at Y, "Yes : No," and "Day 'n Nite," follow exhibitions throughout the U.S. and internationally. Markley earned an MFA from Columbia University’s School of the Arts and a BA from the Cleveland Institute of Art. She received a NYFA award in Drawing in 2003. In felicitously chosen media, she recombines various apple pie images of Americana. In "Highway X," Markley will present the approaches (collage, silk screen, sewing, neon) and the routes (images of roadside motels and drive-ins), through which she arrives at subtle messages of popular culture.

Atomos is the newest full-length work by cutting-edge choreographer Wayne McGregor. Imagining the indivisible order created through uncuttable structures and interwoven with an architectural manipulation of bodies, the choreography of Atomos grows from the form of the atom. This world premiere sees 10 incredible dancers perform McGregor’s unique style - sculptural, rigorous, jarring, and hauntingly beautiful. Neo-classical ambient composers A Winged Victory For The Sullen provide the soaring score (performing live), and costumes are designed by Studio XO, whose groundbreaking wearable technologies and digital skins put them at the forefront of fashion and technology.
