The Theater and the Theater Outside the Theater: Robert Wilson in Conversation
After a short film highlighting Wilson’s work, there will be a conversation between Robert Wilson, Jonathan David Katz, and Peter Harvey talking about poignant moments of Wilson’s career, the relationship between sexuality and creativity, and the Watermill Center—a unique environment for young and emerging artists from around the world to explore new ideas. This talk is a rare opportunity to hear Robert Wilson as he seldom speaks publically in New York. The Museum is honored that he has chosen our organization for this special speaking engagement. Wilson was very involved with the Museum through his support of the Paul Thek exhibition that would not have been possible without the support of the Watermill Center.
