STIEGLITZ—MAD DREAMER
is a one-person bio-drama that captures
the spirit and character of photographer
and art impresario, Alfred Stieglitz.
It re-creates the experience of visiting his famed gallery, 291, listening to Stieglitz’s ongoing monologue as he holds forth on
Life, Art, the nature of Truth,
Pure Art vs. Commercialism,
the artists in his circle, and more. 

 

 

“People used to live in The Year of Our Lord. Now they live in the year of our Landlord. It’s unfortunate. It’s tragic that money has been introduced into this religious ceremony. All true art is a religious, a spiritual manifestation. The workers bring their sacrifices to the altar, and I am expected to get money for them...and at the same time, to keep the altar pure.”
