Balanchine’s Eternal Present: The Photography of Paul Kolnik

Paul Kolnik will present images from over 40 years of photographing the New York City Ballet.

He will discuss his artistic response to the ballets of George Balanchine — images that he calls "illuminated documents," — examining the importance of the "eternal present" and creating a poetic intersection of dance and photography. These images were part of celebrated museum exhibitions in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Tbilisi. Darci Kistler, Balanchine's last ballerina, will be present to offer her unique perspective in relation to these images in conversation with Paul Kolnik. Kolnik’s work will be on view in the Weill Art Gallery as part of the Harkness Dance Festival from Feb 21-May 8, 2018.

An opening reception for the exhibition will take place immediately before this event from 5:30-7 pm. R.S.V.P. here.
