Christopher Knowles first became widely known in the theatrical community as an early collaborator of Robert Wilson, when he provided the libretto for Robert Wilson and Philip Glass’s genre-changing opera Einstein on the Beach while a teenager in 1976. Knowles has continued to cultivate an astoundingly diverse and prolific arts practice that includes writing, dance, painting, sculpture, and his infamous “typings”. Knowles’ works, which employ meticulous geometrical abstractions of text and pattern, are broadly influential, exhibited widely, and held in the permanent collections of major international institutions including the Museum of Modern Art, NY.This special evening will feature the artist performing a selection of rarely-shown works, including The Sundance Kid is Beautiful and texts from Einstein on the Beach in a multimedia environment incorporating early audiotape recordings and recent sculpture.The evening is staged by Noah Khoshbin, with dramaturgy by Lauren DiGiulio. Presented in collaboration with The Watermill Center, Dissident Industries, and Gavin Brown’s Enterprise.
