26th WATERMILL CENTER BENEFIT & AUCTION
Watermill Center, Water Mill, NY
The Watermill Center was founded in 1992 by theater and visual artist Robert Wilson on the site of a former Western Union communication research facility near Southampton, Long Island, about two hours from New York City. Watermill fosters research in the arts of the stage, providing young and emerging artists with a unique environment for creation and exploration in theater and all its related art forms, and developing a strong global network transcending age, experience, social, religious and cultural backgrounds. Watermill supports projects that integrate different genres and art forms, break with traditional forms of representation, and develop democratic and cross-cultural approaches. Watermill is about living and working together, and creating your own environment and sharing this experience with others.
Watermill houses Robert Wilson's extensive art collection for research, study and inspiration. The whole of human experience and traditions in all their diversity is the springboard for the avant-garde of the future. Books, photographs, films, and other documents from the Robert Wilson Archive offer a chance to explore the life and work of Robert Wilson and his collaborators. Watermill offers a wide range of programs and activities throughout the year.
