Baryshnikov Takes His Building for a Test Run
by ROSLYN SULCAS for the New York Times

"We have three or four projects under our belt already," Mr. Baryshnikov said, "and we've been speaking to the people involved about the advantages and disadvantages of the space. We have a few things to sort out, but it's really encouraging that we do seem to have the flexibility we were after."

The Master of Reinvention Finds a New Role: Patron
by JOHN ROCKWELL for the New York Times

Now he is overseeing something else, the much-bruited, still almost stealthy Baryshnikov Arts Center. It was supposed to open in 2004. Then it was November. Except there was no official, or at least publicly advertised, opening date, no gala hoo-ha. And the center, on the top three floors (plus roof access) of a new six-story building at 450 West 37th Street in the garment district, has already been functioning for several months.

...heady list of artistic advisers Mr. Baryshnikov has assembled - people like Pedro Almodóvar, Pina Bausch, Trisha Brown, William Forsythe, Gidon Kremer, Mark Morris, David Salle, Peter Sellars and Sam Shepard.

There is a $7 million goal for the center's portion of the building. Kick-started by a $1 million donation from Mr. Baryshnikov, the campaign has reached $6 million.


Gosh! That is a heady list indeed, including some of my favourite artists from a range of disciplines. The cash side is also impressive, including the $1m from Mr Baryshnikov. What a shining example he is of the truly eclectic nature of dance and the arts in general and one of many counter-examples for those who seek to isolate ballet from the rest of dance. Doubtless, however, the usual suspects will take no notice.
