This exhibit, presented in partnership with SPAO and supported by the National Arts Centre (NAC) and Patrick Gordon Framing, celebrates the creativity and power of Canadian artists and showcases the strong relationship between photography and dance.
"All dancers are, by and large, a photographer's dream. They communicate with their bodies and they are trained to be completely responsive to a collaborative situation." - Annie Leibovitz
During the 2014 CDF, seven local photo-based artists from the SPAO community worked with visiting dancers and choreographers to produce unique works of photographic art—works that reflect both the tradition in this classic pairing and the innovation born of interdisciplinary collaboration.
Développé is on view in the NAC Theatre lobby from September 19 to October 10, 2014, concurrently with the opening of the NAC Dance 14-15 Season and the NAC Culture Days activities.
