Artistry Portrayed: Photographs of DTSBDC's "Margin" by Matailong Du, MA '17
Start Date: 4/10/2017 All Day
End Date: 6/2/2017


Photographs by Corcoran School of the Arts and Design student Matailong Du, (MA New Media Photojournalism ’17), artfully document the production of Margin, a dance performed by the Dana Tai Soon Burgess Dance Company at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in October 2016. As the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery’s first choreographer-in-residence, Dana Tai Soon Burgess (GW Professor of Dance) transformed six portraits from the Smithsonian Institution’s Outwin 2016 American Portraiture Today exhibition into dance.

Matailong Du’s captivating photographs portray the movement of the dancers in Margin and their interaction with artwork in the galleries during preparation for their performance. The exhibit also includes statements by Dana Tai Soon Burgess and Amy Henderson, (Historian Emerita, The National Portrait Gallery), documenting the collaboration.
