That’s what makes this collaboration between the New York City Ballet and Brooklyn-based art duo FAILE so interesting. As part of NYCB’s Art Series it has commissioned FAILE’s Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller to create original works of art inspired by the Company each event combines a ballet performance with an art exhibition.
