A Nymph Recoils

By Iris Fernandez

We are looking forward to Lynn Garafola's March 28th exhibition lecture, ‘Pilgrimage to an Imagined West: Antiquity and the Early Ballets Russes’. Lynn Garafola is a Professor Emerita of Dance at Barnard College, Columbia University. Her talk will explore the idea of antiquity in the Ballets Russes as an assertion of Western identity amid the exotic splendors of Russianness.
