ROBERT WILSON AT THE LOUVRE
Opening today is this carte blanche at the Louvre by the American experimental theatre giant Robert Wilson. The theme of Wilson’s residency, ‘Living Rooms,’ reflects his desire to infuse the museum with the spirit of the Watermill Center on Long Island, the artists’ community where he lives, works, shares his personal collection of art and artifacts with the public, and nurtures the creativity of young and emerging artists. In the Salle de la Chapelle, Wilson presents an exhibition clearly conveying his creative processes, featuring a selection of objects that serve as the raw material for his artistic inspiration. In the Louvre’s auditorium, a rich program of performances, debates and screenings prolongs the exhibit, giving a glimpse into the personal perspective shaping his work as a theater and opera director, artist and designer.
Until 17 Feb. 9am-5.45pm (9.30pm Wed, Sun). Closed Tue. 12€.
