The Barre Project (Blake Works II)

Thursday, March 25, and Saturday, March 27, 2021, 8pm EDT

During the pandemic William Forsythe, New York City Ballet principal dancer Tiler Peck, and online arts education platform CLI Studios came together to create a ballet performance coordinated completely via Zoom. Inspired by dancers worldwide who were unable to access formal classes but committed to sustaining themselves and their art, The Barre Project consists of five musical episodes that focus on the most primary feature of ballet training: barre. Each premiere will have live introductions and question-and-answer sessions with Forsythe and Peck. To watch the performance, register at go.clistudios.com.

Alternate Meanings in Film and Video

You’re only as young as the last time you changed your mind.
—Timothy Leary

Gagosian is pleased to present Broadcast: Alternate Meanings in Film and Video, an online exhibition of artists’ films and videos viewable exclusively on gagosian.com. The exhibition will be organized into a series of “chapters,” each lasting two weeks. The first chapter begins on Tuesday, May 19, 2020.

Broadcast: Alternate Meanings in Film and Video employs the innate immediacy of time-based art to spark reflection on the here and now, taking the words of famed psychologist and countercultural icon Timothy Leary as its starting point.
