The writer Erol Ozan once observed, “Dance is creating a sculpture that is visible only for a moment.” The infamous photographer Nina Alovert’s photographs of ballet exemplify this idea. A survey of works by her from the 1970s to more recent years will open on June 13, 2016 at the National Arts Club. For over 40 years she has excelled at capturing the grace and gravity-defying movements of dancers from all over the world. This exhibition focuses on the legendary icons of Russian ballet: Galina Ulanova, Maya Plisetskaya, Andris Liepa, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Diana Vishneva, Vladimir Malakhov, Nikolay Tsiskaridze and Sergei Polunin, among others. Over 70 images will reveal Alovert’s ability to combine intimacy with other worldliness, a feature that is otherwise only experienced in live performance.
