Discover the Watermill Center This Weekend
If you’re sad to have missed out on the Watermill Center‘s Annual Benefit Gala, do not fret! The performances and installations created especially for the event will be on display to the public, free of charge, on Sunday, August 10 from 3–6 p.m., for “Discover Watermill Day.” The 27-site specific installations are interspersed throughout Watermill’s lush eight-acre campus, providing visitors with a unique opportunity to experience nature and art simultaneously.
Artistic director Robert Wilson’s “Portraits of Lady Gaga” will also be on view (see artnet News report). The 23 video portraits were shot in 2013 and premiered at the Louvre, marking an unprecedented collaboration between the premiere cultural institution, a contemporary artist, and a pop icon. The portraits are heavily influenced by several pieces in the Louvre’s permanent collection, including Jacques-Louis David’s The Death of Marat. The exhibition at the Watermill, which will remain until September 14, marks their first time being shown in the US.
