Overview

Robert Wilson: Moving portraits presents a series of remarkable video portraits of international celebrities, athletes, artists, ordinary people and animals, created by the New York artist, designer and director.

Acclaimed internationally for his prodigious and highly inventive theatre and opera direction, Wilson has incorporated a multitude of creative elements into his video portraits. Lighting, costume, make-up, choreography, scenography and sound are ingeniously crafted into imperceptibly slow-moving tableaux, which urge audiences to reconsider the nature of portraiture. His mesmerising works, displayed to human scale, will stand in conversation with highlights from AGSA’s portrait collection, while also complementing the array of portraits on display in the co-ticketed exhibition Archie 100.

Many of the video portraits refer to pivotal moments in art history and have been created through collaborations with renowned contemporary performers and artists such as Lady Gaga, Isabella Rossellini, Brad Pitt, Zhang Huan, Robert Downey Jr and Salma Hayek. Each work is captured in high-definition video and displayed on large monitors to create an arresting ensemble of characters and moods.

Robert Wilson: Moving portraits is an Australian exclusive for AGSA.
