A story on JR's new art installation at New York City Ballet by Michael Cooper in The New York Times.
J R, 30, said that he liked that his work was creating a reverse migration, where the patrons in the expensive seats were going up to the cheaper seats for the views. “Now you’re inviting everyone to come up there,” he said. “And I like that, that it breaks boundaries — that anyone should be on any floor, it doesn’t matter.”
The installation will be opened to the public free for several hours each day from Sunday through Feb. 9.
From the Wall Street Journal:
Stepping on a dancer''s toes is quite all right at the David H. Koch Theater this season.
New York City Ballet dancers, or at least life-size images of them, are lounging in a 6,500-square-foot photographic mural affixed to the floor of the upstairs lobby. Walking all over them is encouraged.
