Christopher Knowles first became widely known in the theatrical community as an early collaborator of Robert Wilson, when he provided the libretto for Robert Wilson and Philip Glass’s genre-changing opera Einstein on the Beach while a teenager in 1976. Knowles has continued to cultivate an astoundingly diverse and prolific arts practice that includes writing, dance, painting, sculpture, and his infamous “typings”. Knowles’ works, which employ meticulous geometrical abstractions of text and pattern, are broadly influential, exhibited widely, and held in the permanent collections of major international institutions including the Museum of Modern Art, NY
