In Issue 2, we presented a prologue to the new ballet by Karen Kilimnik, set in the Temple of Dendur and the Mastaba Tomb or Perneb, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Here, we take a more in depth look at Kilimnik’s work starring principal dancers Veronika Part and Hee Seo; soloists Misty Copeland and Sarah Lane; and corps de ballet dancers Jessica Saund and Elina Miettinen of American Ballet Theatre.
We are excited to announce that works from this project will be included in Karen Kilimnik’s latest solo exhibition at Cuverie du Prince de Conti, the project is co-presented by L’Academie Conti in partnership with the Domaine Romanee Conti and the Contemporary Art Center Le Consortium in Dijon.
The exhibition is situated in the Dukes of Conti’s old winery—a house from the XVIII century—located in the center of one of the most famous vineyards in France. The show opens Saturday October 26th, for more information visit leconsortium.fr or contact 303 Gallery in New York.
