Mark Ryden reviewed in The New York Times

by Robin Pogrebin

Painters and choreographers have a history of collaboration; Marc Chagall designed the sets and costumes for Adolph Bolm’s “Firebird” at Ballet Theater in 1945, and Marcel Dzama did the same for Justin Peck’s “The Most Incredible Thing” with City Ballet last year.

Now, the pop-surrealist artist Mark Ryden has designed the backdrops, props and costumes for Alexei Ratmansky’s “Whipped Cream,” which will have its New York premiere with American Ballet Theater at the Metropolitan Opera House on Monday, May 22. In tandem, the Paul Kasmin Gallery, which represents Mr. Ryden, is presenting an exhibition of drawings, sketches and paintings created for the production.
