THURSDAY PICK | Minouk Lim and Emily Johnson dance the Seoul streets at the Walker Art Center

If writing about music, as Martin Mull may or may not have said, is like dancing about architecture, then what is dancing in sculpture? That’s what Korean artist Minouk Lim and local performer Emily Johnson will be doing on May 31 at the Walker Art Center, “animating” Lim’s wearable sculptures on the opening day of Lim’s exhibit Heat of Shadows. Lim’s work concerns urban alienation, a favorite theme for dancers as well, so I have a hunch we’re going to be seeing a lot of come-here-come-here-come-here-come-here-get-away-get-away-get-away-get-away moments. Isn’t that what life is all about?
