At first encounter with any of Robert Wilson's main stage works can be literally overwhelming. The sheer beauty of his theatrical visions, the dreamy rightness of the action, the hypnotic blend of non-linear disjunction and deeper coherence... all of these seize one's attention and, if one is particularly susceptible to Wilson's power, compel one into thinking that nothing like this can ever have happened on a stage before.

To characterize Robert Wilson's work as a summation of his activities as a teacher, writer, sculptor, painter, designer, architect and theater director would be to emphasize the diversity of his talents and overlook the coherence which underlies his work. This exhibition of Wilson's work was designed to expand our perception as we continue to view and review the impact of many arts upon the visual world.
