Works & Process at the Guggenheim Presents a Dance Concert

Spring is here and with it comes new art and works to go out and discover. One of my favorite venues to check out is the Guggenheim Muesem. The Works & Process performing arts series is presenting a dance concert in collaboration with NYU's Institute for the Study of the Ancient World's exhibition, “Hymn to Apollo: The Ancient World and the Ballets Russes,” on Sunday and Monday, April 28 and 29, 2019 at 7:30 pm.

 

Inspired by “Hymn to Apollo: The Ancient World and the Ballets Russes,” the first exhibition to focus specifically on the role of ancient world and the Ballet Russes, costume designers Reid Bartelme and Harriet Jung will use original Ballets Russes costumes and designs as their point of departure for this Works & Process costume and dance commission featuring music excerpts from Maurice Ravel's Daphnis and Chloe.

 

Hymn to Apollo: The Ancient World and the Ballets Russes

The Institute for the Study of the Ancient World (ISAW) continues to illuminate the rich dialogue between the ancient and the modern with Hymn to Apollo: The Ancient World and the Ballets Russes, an exhibition exploring the seminal role of antiquity in shaping the radically new creations of the famed ballet troupe founded in 1909 by Sergei Diaghilev. The first exhibition to examine this topic, Hymn to Apollo contains around 95 objects, including outstanding examples of ancient pottery, sculpture, metalwork, and more, coupled with costumes, photographs, watercolors, musical scores, digitized films of Ballets Russes productions, and a rich trove of archival material.

 

Hymn to Apollo is on view from March 6 through June 2, 2019. It has been organized by ISAW and is co-curated by Clare Fitzgerald, Associate Director of Exhibitions and Gallery Curator, and Rachel Herschman, Curatorial Assistant, both at ISAW. Ballets Russes scholar Lynn Garafola served as an outside advisor.
