Video 50

. May 16, 2012.

Art cannot be contained. It mixes, mingles, mutates and contaminates through all forms and genres. Robert Wilson has been a transforming force in the amalgamated world of art, receiving world recognition with his various endeavors into theater, drawing, furniture design and music among many other creative mediums. Wilson is best known for his collaboration with Philip Glass on the groundbreaking 1976 opera Einstein on the Beach. The University of Michigan Museum of Art will exhibit one of Wilson’s experimental installations, Video 50, composed of random 30 second “episodes” combining surreal imagery and micro-stories to create a thought provoking non-linear character study which blurs the boundaries between the subject matter and viewer. Runs Saturday, January 7 through April 29. 525 South State St., Ann Arbor. 734-764-0395. www.umma.umich.edu
