Mikhail Baryshnikov | Biography

Mikhail Baryshnikov was born in Riga, Latvia in 1948 to Russian parents. He received early dance training at the Riga Choreographic School and was later accepted by the Vaganova School in Leningrad where he studied with renowned teacher Alexander Pushkin. He first achieved international acclaim at 18 as a soloist with the Kirov Ballet, remaining with the company from 1968 till his defection from the Soviet Union in 1974. Baryshnikov performed with modern and classical dance companies around the world until joining New York City Ballet as a principal dancer in 1979. In 1980 he became the artistic director of American Ballet Theater, a post held until 1990. From 1990 to 2002 he served as director of The White Oak Dance Project that he co-founded with choreographer Mark Morris.

Baryshnikov has starred in several films, worked in television, and performed on Broadway. He has received numerous awards and honorary degrees, most recently the 2000 Kennedy Center Honors, the National Medal of the Arts, the Commonwealth Award, the Jerome Robbins' Award and Yale University's highest honor - the Chubb Fellowship.

The artist first began exploring photography in the mid 1980's and for two decades Baryshnikov has documented his travels, friends, family and surroundings while studiously expanding his knowledge of the camera. Mikhail was published in Aperture magazine in Spring 2003 and his photographs have been exhibited in a variety of museums and galleries all over the world including: The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow; The Latvian National Opera House, Riga; The St. Petersburg History of Photography Museum, St. Petersburg; The Cortona Festival del Sole, Cortona, Spain; The Gallery at the Metropolitan Opera House, New York; The Movado Gallery, New York; The Kennedy Center; Washington D.C. and The Gibbes Museum, Charleston, North Carolina.

Baryshnikov's present endeavor, the Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York City, is a laboratory for new work and a creative haven for emerging artists.
