Over the past eighteen months, de Waal has been collaborating with choreographer Wayne McGregor on the stage design for a new ballet at the Royal Opera House. Set to the Chichester Psalms, this new production forms part of a programme celebrating the centenary of Leonard Bernstein's birth. For these "heart-breaking songs of exile", the artist has created "structures for the dancer, places of refuge and pause", and costumes in a spectrum of reds with the fashion designer, Shirin Guild.

This summer, MACE is holding de Waal's first exhibition in Spain. "This is the white island", says de Waal: "the white of the salt flats, the foam breaking in the breeze. The white of the rock. The white haze." A place of transition and exchange, the artist has worked closely with the museum to create a special exhibition of recent white works - "sculptures made for strong light" - alongside new installations, combining Paros marble, alabaster and Ibizan salt with his porcelain for the first time.
