Opus 40 Presents Laura Diffenderfer’s “It Won’t Be This Way Forever” Photography Exhibit
August 11 @ 10:30 am - September 30 @ 5:30 pm$9 – $11
Artist Laura Diffenderfer offers an exhibition of photographs, “It Won’t Be This Way Forever,” at Opus 40 in Saugerties, NY August 11–September 30. There will be an opening reception on Saturday, August 13 from 4pm-6pm (RSVP required: https://www.tickettailor.com/events/opus40/693302)
The photographs, which feature Cuban dancers, ask viewers to pause in in-between moments—the ones we want to last forever, the ones we want to pass quickly, and moments of uncertainty and change. “Many of us feel like we are suspended in time in some kind of transition right now given Covid-19, which has been particularly destabilizing to the dance community, and to Cuba,” says Diffenderfer. The photographs feature dancers not on stage, but in quiet moments of transition in the studio and in the wings of a theater.
