Glass House Jimmy Robert: Imitation of Lives

11/03/2017 to 11/05/2017

Elm St., New Canaan, CT Phone: 203-594-9884.

In Imitation of Lives, Bucharest-based French visual artist Jimmy Robert occupies Philip Johnson's Glass House, turning the modernist icon into a stage for an intimate performance that delves into the intersections of architecture, visibility, and black representation. In this live collage, Robert draws on the house's idiosyncratic features to devise a piece that merges poetry and music for a cast engaged in a subtle game of looking and being looked at in turn. Robert's layered performance turns the Glass House into an arena where exposure, representation, and power can be thought anew. A limited number of $35 student tickets are available; kindly write to rsvp@theglasshouse.org for more details.
