The Watermill Center will once again brought together the worlds of theater, art, fashion, design, and society for The 21st Annual Watermill Center Summer Benefit. Watermill International Summer Program Participants come from over 25 countries to create installations and performances throughout the eight and a half acres of grounds during the event. The funds raised will support The Watermill Center’s year round Artist Residency Programs, providing a unique environment for young and emerging artists to explore and develop new work.
Photographer José Ginarte goes behind the scenes of the performance and art summer benefit at the The Watermill Center in Long Island, the interdisciplinary art space started by theater and visual artist Robert Wilson. Art, fashion and performance came together in a dreamy night of costume, art and intrigue, where every turn was a new adventure.
Theater and visual artist Robert Wilson’s interdisciplinary art space, The Watermill Center, will hold an art auction benefiting their artist residency program. With works by Daniel Arsham, Richard Barnes, Susan Meiselas and many more, the night will include installations and performances across the beautiful Long Island property, attracting patrons of the arts across the world. The works in the auction, all available on Artsy, are a diverse collection, as vibrant as the center itself. Check out the highlights of the event from July 26th!
