The basis for Art Series lies in New York City Ballet’s rich history of working with visual artists. When the New York State Theater opened in 1964, architect Philip Johnson and NYCB Founder Lincoln Kirstein curated a permanent collection for what was to become one of New York City’s great public spaces, and included works by Jasper Johns, Lee Bontecou, and Elie Nadelman. In more recent years, other leading and emerging artists – luminaries like Keith Haring, Julian Schnabel and Santiago Calatrava – have collaborated with the Company in a variety of ways on and off the stage. Art Series builds on these traditions.
