New York City Ballet Art Series Presents Santtu Mustonen

Art Series aims to cross-pollinate the disciplines of performing and visual arts – and their audiences – by inviting a contemporary artist to create a site specific work of art at New York City Ballet’s Lincoln Center home.

This winter, New York City Ballet’s Art Series returns for its fifth installment featuring Finnish-born, Brooklyn-based artist Santtu Mustonen.

By combining abstract, handcrafted visual imagery with new technology, Mustonen makes visual art that literally moves. Taking advantage of the Koch Theater’s towering height and multiple vantage points, the centerpiece of his commission will feature a large-scale video installation created from a series of original, digitally altered paintings that the artist has produced especially for New York City Ballet.

Mustonen’s work will be on view at three special New York City Ballet Art Series performances at Lincoln Center on January 28 Eve, February 3, and 23. All tickets are priced at $30 and each audience member will receive a limited edition commemorative takeaway created by Santtu.
