Stephen Petronio and Anish Kapoor Team Up to Sell Art for Dance’s Sake

Excerpt from The New York Times:
Once again the world of visual art, which creates durable works that can command astronomical prices, is coming to the aid of the world of performing arts, in which it is increasingly difficult to find the money to create and present works that last just until the curtain falls.

The choreographer Stephen Petronio, who is beginning a $3 million fund-raising campaign to establish a choreographic residency program in Pawling, N.Y., announced Thursday that he had received a lead gift from the artist Anish Kapoor, who donated a sculpture that is expected to fetch $1 million in a private sale. More money for the residency project will be raised in an online auction beginning next week, featuring works by artists including Cecily Brown, Teresita Fernández, Jasper Johns, Judy Pfaff and Matt Saunders.

“Most of the money will have been raised from the gifts of other artists,” Mr. Petronio said in a telephone interview.

Stephen Petronio et Anish Kapoor font équipe pour une vente artistique au bénéfice de la danse

Extrait du New York Times :
Une fois de plus le monde des arts visuels, qui produit des œuvres durables capables d’atteindre des prix astronomiques, vient au secours des arts de la scène, pour lesquels il est de plus en plus difficile de générer les fonds nécessaires à la création et la présentation d’œuvres qui ne durent que le temps d’une représentation.

Le chorégraphe Stephen Petronio, qui entame actuellement une campagne de financement de 3 million d’USD pour la fondation d’un programme de résidence en chorégraphie à Pawling, dans l’état de New York, a annoncé jeudi qu’il avait reçu un don principal de l’artiste Anish Kapoor, qui a fait don d’une sculpture qui devrait atteindre la coquette somme de 1 million USD dans le cadre d’une vente privée. Des fonds supplémentaires seront recueillis pour le projet de résidence lors d’une vente aux enchères en ligne qui débute la semaine prochaine et inclut les œuvres de nombreux artistes dont Cecily Brown, Teresita Fernández, Jasper Johns, Judy Pfaff et Matt Saunders.

“La majorité des fonds proviendront des dons d’autres artistes”, confirma Mr. Petronio dans une entrevue au téléphone.
