Exhibition Preview: The Theatre of Robert Anton

Andrew Brownsword Gallery5-7pm

Join us for the opening of The Theatre of Robert Anton; a fantastically unique member of New York’s avant-garde theatre scene of the 1970s, who fabricated elaborate figures and props for silent plays he enacted in miniature prosceniums. In addition to drawings, news clippings, letters, and a recent film of interviews with friends and fans, The Theatre of Robert Anton gathers thirty-nine figures —which Anton referred to as “actors”— in dramatically lit tableaux.

Enjoy a drink at the bar, a talk from exhibition curator, Anke Kempkes and immerse yourself in this surrealist world.

Robert Anton’s practice was very steeped in alchemy. He used fire and water, magically transformed puppets into completely different personas.Piotr Policht, Blok Magazine
