JR Goes To The Ballet: Dancing Across the Walls

JR Goes To The Ballet: Dancing Across the Walls

Street Artist JR has joined the ballet, or at least has become a collaborator with it.

Joining a short list of artists associated with the New York City company, and an even shorter list of Street Artists, the French photographer has been spending time in rehearsals with the performers to create these huge pasted images to greet patrons.

The scale is impressive, the placement across the interior gives the place a sense of immediacy, with an echo of the transgressive to welcome guests to George Balanchine’s JEWELS, an epic performance evening consisting of three ballets: EMERALDS, RUBIES, and DIAMONDS, with music by Gabriel Faure, Igor Stravinsky, and Pyotr Ilyich Tschaikovsky.

Here are scenes from the installation of JR’s new pieces of the New York City Ballet Art Series (Twitter @nycballet). The big opening performance? Tonight!

Faile. Along with their recent announcement of their partnership with the New York City Ballet Arts Series came a marketing campaign blitz that saw the New York City transit system and streets blanketed with the promotional posters. So once again Street Artists see their work in place it was previously, but because a fee has been paid, this time it is legal.

Says Faile: “It’s pretty crazy to see that work on the subways and streets and not to have been the ones to put it up there. Quite ironic” (photo © Jaime Rojo)
