Description

This book documents two 2017 exhibitions of the work of Derek Liddington staged back-to-back across two sites: the Art Gallery of York University and the Southern Alberta Art Gallery. These exhibitions were, in turn, a performance of two photographic stills taken from two 1928 Ballet Russes productions—Ode and Apollon Musagète. Pivoting across time and space, Liddington animates the space in-between performance and image as a point of departure for his ongoing investigation into the relations between narrative and abstraction. Like the revolutionary practice of the Ballet Russes itself, these exhibitions operate at the intersection of dance, theatre, and the visual arts.

Essays by Emelie Chhangur and Fabien Maltais-Bayda are accompanied by an interview with Liddington by Ryan Doherty as well as full documentation of the two exhibitions.

Co-published with the Southern Alberta Art Gallery.
