The NYC-based artist collective Faile has been busy for the last five months preparing a new exhibition at the Lincoln Center. They have been chosen as the first artists to launch the New York City Ballet Art Series, an annual hosting of art inspired by the NYC Ballet. Over the past 60 years, the NYC Ballet has worked with an amazing list of artists including Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Francesco Clemente, Julien Schnabel, Helen Frankenthaler, Keith Haring and several others, all of whom have created artworks and other visual elements for the ballet.
The centerpiece of the February exhibition, titled Les BALLETS de FAILE, is a 40-foot tall tower and as well as a new suite of paintings, on view from Jan. 15th – Feb. 24th. For the premiere of the NYC Ballet Art Series, NYCB will host two special performances on Friday, Feb. 1st and Wednesday, May 29th, 2013.
