Homage to Chagall- Colors of Love

Balatarin [This week, Artsy features our partner the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA), whose current exhibition Chagall: Beyond Color showcases Marc Chagall-designed ballet costumes and sets and rare works revealing the artist's engagement with Mexico and the American Southwest. A classically trained art historian, DMA Director Maxwell L. Anderson has also been a pioneering force in using digital technologies to further museum missions. In our interview with Anderson, he talks about institutional resistance to technology, the widespread obsession with contemporary art, and how he’s working to ensure that the DMA becomes one of the most progressive museums in the United States.]

Zendanian An injury to one is an injury to all.
Chagall: Beyond Color presents the artist’s beloved paintings alongside his works in sculpture, ceramics, and collage to explore his relationship with space and volume. The Dallas Museum of Art is the only U.S. venue, and the co-organizing institution, for this internationally touring exhibition featuring more than 140 objects including paintings, costumes, sketches, ceramics, and sculptures. The centerpiece of the exhibition will be a display of costumes made by Marc Chagall in 1942 for the production of the ballet Aleko, choreographed by Léonide Massine and set to the music of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Piano Trio in A Minor. The ballet’s première took place in September 1942 in Mexico City, followed by the Ballet Theatre of New York production, and the costumes have not been seen in the U.S. since.
