Bass Museum of Art. June 22nd, 2008. 3:00 p.m.The documentary Absolute Wilson will be presented at the Bass Museum of Art on Sunday, June 22nd, 2008 as part of a series of screenings organized by the museum. This provocative documentary from Katharina Otto chronicles the epic life, times and creative genius of Robert Wilson, intimately revealing for the first time one of the most controversial, rule-breaking and downright mysterious artists of our era.
Wilson, who overcame childhood learning disabilities growing up in Waco, Texas, rose to become one of the most respected avant-garde artists in late 1960s New York. As much a tale of social injustice as a portrait of an artist, this mix of interviews and live performance is testimony to how Wilson's early challenges influenced his creative expression.
