The first U.S. exhibition focused on the work of Greek painter Yannis Tsarouchis will debut at Wrightwood 659 next month.

"Yannis Tsarouchis: Dancing in Real Life" is scheduled to run from May 7-July 31 and will feature around 200 works by Tsarouchis, including paintings and pieces from public and private collections. The exhibition, located at 659 W. Wrightwood Ave., ​will be open Fridays from noon to 7:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The exhibit focuses on structural devices and recurring subjects in Tsarouchis' work, including exploration and staging of the Other Self, the creation of new allegories and the use of dance as an embodiment of realness.

Tickets are $15 and will be available online only at tickets.wrightwood659.org/events starting April 19.
