Chagall: Fantasies for the Stage

Katia Zavistovski, MA

Chagall: Fantasies for the Stage, presented by The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), highlights the principal role that music and dance played in Chagall's artistic practice. The exhibition concentrates on Chagall’s four productions for the stage: the ballets Aleko, set to music by Pyotr Tchaikovsky (1942), The Firebird by Igor Stravinsky (1945), and Daphnis and Chloé by Maurice Ravel (1958), and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s opera The Magic Flute (1967). The exhibition features the artist’s vibrant costumes and set designs — some of which have not been exhibited since they appeared on stage — and includes a selection of iconic paintings depicting musicians and lyrical scenes, numerous works on paper, and documentary footage of original performances.

Instructor: Katia Zavistovski joined LACMA as Assistant Curator of Modern Art in June 2016. She received her MA from Williams College and a BA from Washington University in St. Louis, both in art history. She is currently completing her PhD at Rice University. Zavistovski has held positions at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Menil Collection, and Mass MoCA.
