illy presents the new illy Art Collection curated by Robert Wilson.
The theme that inspired this collection is The Watermill Center, a laboratory for arts and humanities founded in 1992 by Robert Wilson.
The five artists who collaborated with Robert Wilson for the creation of this series of collectible coffee cups were identified during the annual International Summer Program, attended by almost 100 artists of at least 30 different nationalities.
The collection contains a cup designed by Robert Wilson.
The other five decorations were and were selected among the works of all the participants: Christopher Knowles, Hope Esser, Willie Filkowski, Clo'e Floirat and Gintare Minelgaite.
Each cup that makes up this incredible illy Art Collection bears the artist's signature and is available in a limited edition.
Included in the package is a tin decorated with 250g ground illy espresso coffee.
Robert Wilson is one of the most important and celebrated visual and theatrical artists of our time. His research in theater combines artistic forms such as dance, music, lyrics, sculpture and light. His works are able to provide images with great aesthetic power and intense emotional charge.
In 1992 he founded the Watermill Center in Southampton, Long Island about two hours from New York.
His goal is simple. Provide shelter for young and emerging artists where they can give free rein to their creativity.
"It's OK to make mistakes, it's OK to let go, it's OK to laugh."
