With long historical significance, light has been the subject of artwork throughout a variety of cultures for centuries. This exhibition will focus on contemporary approaches and investigations into light in the broadest sense. With the traditional use of light as allegorical subject matter in mediums ranging from painting and drawing to photography, light is often employed to construct visual metaphor and imbue meaning in a given work. Contemporary artists such as Maria Nordman, Uta Barth, and Jennifer Steinkamp, for example, have created space for a mode of investigation that explores the physical traits and properties of light as medium, rendering an intersection between medium and meaning, intellectual and emotional engagement. All mediums including painting, sculpture, photography, video and installation are welcome and encouraged.
