Walter Robinson – Artist Provocateur

Interviewed by artist-critic Noelle Bodick, Robinson states: I am interested in desire and consumer happiness. When I started out, I wanted to paint like the artists who did illustrations of pulp paperbacks – of romance, passion, love. A lot of the things I was reproducing are charged with sexuality…unleashing the libido. Walter Robinson, a critic and painter, has been a presence in New York since the mid 70’s and has exhibited his alluring paintings since the early 80’s. Loosely affiliated with Post Modernism and The Pictures Generation, he subverted the New York art world with his populist oriented work. As critic and writer, he co-published Art Rite magazine and was editor of Artnet, an on-line art magazine.

In this film we visit Robinson in his LIC studio and see exhibitions at the Jeff Bailey Gallery in Hudson NY, a retrospective exhibition-organized by Barry Blinderman- for State Univ. of Illinois, Normal Il, and at Jeffrey Deitch Gallery in NYC. Interviewed are Walter Robinson, critic and curator Carlo McCormick, artist Mark Kostabi, Janelle Reiring, director of Metro Pictures Gallery NYC and Jeffrey Deitch of Deitch projects NYC.
