Arts Picks: Ralph Lemon, Scaffold Room

At the Walker Art Center

Ralph Lemon may be the ideal Walker Art Center artist in that he defies categorization on principle, blending dance, performance, visual art, text and music with a hallucinatory sense of form and structure. Lemon calls his new combination performance/ installation, Scaffold Room, a “lecture-performance-musical” in which modes of contemporary performance are “refracted” through the archetypal personas of black women in American history, fiction and popular culture. Sept. 25-28, Walker Art Center, 612-375-7600, walkerart.org
