It’s ballet season!
To kick it off, Mana Contemporary is celebrating the woman who first fused classical ballet with rock music in the 1980s: American choreographer Karole Armitage.
Curated by none other than Jeffrey Deitch, the exhibit features artist collaborations with Armitage over the past 35 years with visionaries like Jean Paul Gaultier, Jeff Koons, and Christian Lacroix, just to name a few. It’s hard to not be inspired by her rebellious ballerina aesthetic, with the all of the stripes and boldly eccentric costumes.
Making Art Dance, on view January 11th – March 13th at Mana Contemporary.
