EDGE OF LIGHT

A dark space exhibition that brings together artists working with light as a material and medium.

Emily Andersen, Ed Bear, Blinn & Lambert, Julian Day & Kamari Carter, Rachel Guardiola, Emma Hendry, Jess Holz, Rita Jimenez, Shohei Katayama, Nooshin Rostami and Evan Voelbel
Curated by Jonathan Sims

All illumination will emanate from the artworks that include experimental projection, neon, ultraviolet, stereoscopy, and other manipulations of light. Sculptural projections have been created onsite by combining digital and optical manipulation with precision-made and found objects. Light is deconstructed, shaped and streamed in these stunning new works.

Virtual Opening on Thursday, December 3 at 7pm
with streamed experimental audiovisual performances by Testu Collective.
