FRAGRANCE SERIES 1995
Robert Whitman: MIKHAIL BARYSHNIKOV. BODY METAPHYSICS
October 12, 2016 — January 22, 2017
The exhibition features Robert Whitman and Mikhail Baryshnikov’s five artistic encounters from 1990s to 2015. The series include Perfume campaign shoot (1995); rehearsal with a master choreographer Merce Cunningham at American Ballet Theatre (1999); Baryshnikov usual classes (2002) and exercise; and the most recent commissioned shooting for AS IF Magazine timed to 10-year anniversary of Baryshnikov Art Center. Whatever the occasion, Whitman captures Baryshnikov’s magnificent grace, charisma and style. The Fragrance series reveals his lively and playful mood. The exhibition will also reveal contact sheets of each series showing behind-the-scenes shooting process.
