In early August, BalletCollective returns to the Palm Theater in Telluride, CO to workshop its new works and share their process with the community. Every BalletCollective work is crafted over months of close collaboration between groups of artists. As we prepare our new works for performance, we like to try it out in a theater to see how each element comes together. The Palm Theater in Telluride, CO has granted BalletCollective a residency which will culminate in a preview of our works in progress and the finished versions of the works we workshopped last summer. Public showing on Saturday, August 13th.

Unless you are a Russian oligarch or a billionaire art collector, the closest you’ve probably come to owning a Jeff Koons original is by buying one of his coffee-table books. (In 2013, the 61-year-old artist sold Balloon Dog (Orange) for $58.4 million, which became the most expensive work by a living artist to be auctioned.) But now, thanks to Google, you can now snag a limited-edition Koons for the small price of $40.
Google’s latest Nexus “live cases” features three sculptures from Koons’s Gazing Ball series: Diana, Bust, and Mailbox. The three printed cases, which will be available for a limited time beginning May 10, also includes an animated wallpaper of the artist’s very first live-action video artwork called The Gazing Ball Ballet.
Koons worked alongside New York City Ballet dancers Troy Schumacher and Ashley Laracey for the live-action wallpaper. The dancers interpreted 28 movements from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, while simultaneously holding onto a Gazing Ball.
