Le Ballet mecanique

In conjunction with the Dada exhibition, automated musical instruments, including sixteen programmed grand player pianos, play portions of George Antheil's score for the Fernand Leger film, Le Ballet mecanique (1924), on the mezzanine of the East Building. The installation, activated for a ten-minute performance each weekday at 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. as well as Saturdays and Sundays at 1:00 p.m., will continue through the close of the exhibition on May 14, 2006. Leger's 16-minute film may be viewed in the exhibition, without sound.
