VOOM PORTRAITS

Robert Wilson is an exhibition of provocative high-definition video portraits by epochal avant-garde artist Robert Wilson. Working since 2004 as an Artist-in-Residence with VOOM HD Networks, a US-based television provider devoted to high-definition television channels that commissioned and produced this works, Robert Wilson has created video portraits that combine high-definition’s state-of-the-art clarity with his own distinctive artistic vision, a cross between photography, film, literature and sound.

The portraits, including celebrities, artists, intellectuals, animals, are presented on large-scale HD plasma flat-screens, and each work is accompanied by original musical scores.
