Featured Event

  1. Tues, 1/10, 7PM, Helmut Stern Auditorium, Free!
  2. Absolute Wilson chronicles the epic life, times, and creative genius of theater director Robert Wilson—whose work will be featured UMMA’s exhibition of his 1978 video sketchbook Video 50 in the recently opened New Media Gallery (January 7–April 29) and in the UMS presentation of Einstein on the Beach (Power Center for the Performing Arts, January 20–22). More than a biography, the film becomes an exhilarating exploration of the transformative power of creativity itself, and the inspirational tale of a boy who grew up as an outsider in the American South only to become a fearless artist with a profoundly original perspective to share with the world. The narrative reveals the deep connections between Wilson’s childhood experiences and the haunting beauty of his monumental works, which include the theatrical sensations Deafman Glance, Einstein on the Beach, and the CIVIL warS.
