About this Event
601 Turner Blvd. Savannah, GA 31401
Celebrate the opening of Robert Wilson’s exhibition A Boy From Texas and the legendary artist’s 80th birthday in the SCAD Museum of Art’s Alex Townsend Memorial Courtyard.
Renowned for his masterful use of light in theatrical productions across the world’s most important theaters, Wilson has often cited the expansive horizons of the Texas landscape as a source of inspiration for his stage environments. His earliest performance works were actions of extreme duration, “silent operas” with no words, few sounds, and slow, exacting movements: theatrical movement at the pace of nature. An homage — in part to his childhood in Texas; part to early theater works and installations developed in rural America — A Boy From Texas reflects on concepts of nature, fragility, and rebirth.
This event is free and open to the public.
