Constellation in Red, Yellow and Blue at the Watermill Center (illustrated above)
Opening June 11 at Robert Wilson’s Watermill Center is G.T. Pellizzi’s new installation of light sculptures made specifically for the space. Known primarily for his sculptures, Pellizzi’s work often takes on a referential nature, from splatters of paint akin to Jackson Pollock’s oeuvre to mobiles a la Alexander Calder. For this upcoming exhibit, his light sculptures will evoke images and symbols inspired from the Watermill Center’s collection of textiles bearing mythological and astrological designs.
Constellation in Red, Yellow and Blue will run until August 28 at the Watermill Center, 39 Water Mill Towd Road. Reservations are required to attend the opening reception at 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 11. For more information on the exhibition and the Watermill Center’s hours of operation, visit watermillcenter.org.
