Beacons: An Exhibition of Luminous Art
Applications due by 12/16/10
Exhibition: January 14–February 13
Winter in West Michigan is a season of shortened days, grey skies and long, dark nights. For its forthcoming exhibition Beacons, the UICA will embrace winter’s darkness in order to showcase the light that artists can bring to bear upon this often bleak time of year. Lighting throughout the facility will be dramatically reduced in order to accommodate works that provide their own luminosity, including but not limited to: film and video projections, light installations, sound installations, images or objects capable of generating their own luminosity.
