UNC Asheville in Asheville, NC, Features Works by Pavel Antonov

UNC Asheville in Asheville, NC, is presenting Robert Wilson vs. Burning Man, an exhibit of photographs by renowned Russian-American photographer Pavel Antonov, on view in the Blowers Gallery of UNC Asheville’s Ramsey Library, through Feb. 28, 2014.

This two-part exhibition examines two different events in contemporary American culture: the conceptual innovative theater of Robert Wilson, and spontaneous theatrical performances in the desert of Nevada.

Antonov is known for his work in theater photography, and his exhibits have spanned from Moscow to Zurich to New York. His work has been published on covers and in features of Vanity Fair, Vogue, ELLE, and Marie Claire, among others.

The Burning Man Festival ia a yearly gathering in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert in which participants create a temporary city dedicated to community and art.

The New York Times has described Wilson as “a towering figure in the world of experimental theater…an explorer in the uses of time and space onstage.” His numerous awards and honors include an Obie award for direction, the Golden Lion for sculpture from the Venice Biennale, and the 3rd Dorothy and Lillian Gish Prize for Lifetime Achievement.

Robert Wilson vs. Burning Man is brought to UNC Asheville by a collaboration of the university with the A.A. Bakhrushin Central State Museum of Theatre in Moscow and Grabbe, Inc. New York, NY.
