Description

This special collectors’ edition celebrates a unique collaboration between two of London’s greatest cultural institutions. Together The Royal Ballet and the National Gallery commissioned three acclaimed contemporary artists – Chris Ofili, Conrad Shawcross and Mark Wallinger – to work with international choreographers and composers to create three new ballets inspired by the Titian paintings Diana and Callisto, Diana and Actaeon and The Death of Actaeon. As well as designing the sets and costumes, the artists also produced new works for a show at the National Gallery. The book tells the story of this extraordinary, complex project from conception to stage and gallery. The artists’ notebooks, sketches and other material from the studio are reproduced to show how they evolved their initial ideas into working designs. Numerous views of the dancers’ rehearsals, the creation of the sets and the gallery installations, as well as dozens of unseen photographs of the performances themselves, take the reader behind the scenes to see the many processes and people involved in transforming the artists’ vision into a finished production. An introduction by National Gallery curator Dr Minna Moore Ede, explains how the collaboration came to fruition and unfolded. Dame Monica Mason’s foreword completes this stunning volume. Limited edition of 250 copies Presented with three original artists’ prints in a clothbound clamshell case
