It’s Paris, 1923 at the home of Isadora Duncan. The "Mother of Modern Dance" is in decline. The middle-aged American expatriate scrounges for financial support to start a dance school in Italy. She hosts a dinner for a man she believes to be an Italian diplomat who can help her finance her dream. Also in attendance are the maid who speaks only French, a 19-year-old Greek piano prodigy, a prim Russian émigré who has signed on as Duncan's translator, an American friend, and a Swedish teenager. The dinner party proves to be a true “Tower of Babel” as well as an evening of revelations, both funny and poignant.

Gerald Cyrus' photographs tend to stare back at you in a way that makes you remember them long after you've moved on. His portraits capture the very relaxed and often joyful stares of his sitters so that it seem like they are looking at you rather than a camera. Come see a selection of some of the most powerful and moving contemporary portraits in Gerald's oeuvre in this wonderful and compelling exhibit.
