Black Curtain Reader’s Theatre: Bauer

Mar 12 - Mar 13

LT Pick

Bauer is the true story of forgotten abstract artist Rudolf Bauer, peer to Picasso, Chagall and Kandinsky and beacon to Pollock and Rothko. The year is 1953 and the Bauer hasn’t painted in 13 years, ever since he unwittingly signed a contract that gave ownership of all his past and future work to the Guggenheim Foundation.
Bauer was poised to be the focal artist of the new Guggenheim Museum in New York City, however, the Guggenheim opened without a single Bauer on display. What happened to his paintings? What caused Bauer to set down his brushes and never paint again?
A story of love and defiance, Bauer is an untold story of powerful art, powerful passion, and a powerful downfall. In this case, life really is art.
