Produced in collaboration with UAL’s Archives and Special Collections Centre, students from MA Curating and Collections at Chelsea have worked with an uncatalogued collection of costumes and accessories from the Ballets Russes to form an exhibition in the Triangle Space at Chelsea College of Arts.
The Ballets Russes were an avant-garde dance company which first performed in Paris in 1909. The productions reconceptualised ballet as a work of art on the stage; bringing together choreographers, fine artists, set designers and costumiers who together dazzled audiences with new stories told through dance.
MA Curating and Collections have led the research; interrogating the significance of the ballet and highlighting important pieces through their display.
