Degas Sculpture Exhibition in LA

Nov 10, 2017 - Apr 9, 2018

Degas exhibited just one sculpture during his lifetime. However, in the privacy of his studio, the painter modelled in wax and clay throughout his career, producing hundreds of small-scale studies of horses, dancers, and bathers that were seen only by close friends. Taking Shape: Degas as Sculptor explores the improvisational nature of Degas’s artistic practice through the Norton Simon’s collection of modèles; the first and only set of bronzes cast from the original wax and plaster statuettes. Norton Simon Museum,…

Degas Danse Dessin

Dec 5, 2017 - Feb 25, 2018

On the centenary of the death of Edgar Degas, the Musée d’Orsay pays tribute to the master with a unique exhibition charting his 20-year friendship with writer, poet and thinker Paul Valéry. Featuring Degas’s drawings and sketches, and extracts from Valéry’s little-known tome on his friend’s oeuvre, Degas Danse Dessin, the exhibit threads a tight narrative, delving into their social interaction and creative kinship.

Horsing around with Bartabas

January 12 - March 4

Mighty stallions dangling mid-air watched on by hooded horsemen... it's just another day at the Zingaro stables. Spearheaded by maverick écuyer Bartabas, over the decades the pioneering equestrian theatre troupe has boldly fused classic dressage with lyrical dance and opera. But we've seen nothing yet, it seems. Bartabas's farewell show, Ex Anima, promises to be the most daring and gravity-defying romp ever attempted. The plucky horseman's swan song will give the floor to his trusty steeds, entirely eclipsing Zingaro's fine…
