The exhibition showcases artworks created from the 1960s to the present day, including immersive environments, free-standing light sculptures and projections.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">From atmospheric installations to intangible sculptures that you can move around - and even through - visitors can experience light in all of its spatial and sensory forms. Individual artworks explore different aspects of light such as colour, duration, intensity and projection, as well as perceptual phenomena. They also use light to address architecture, science and film, and do so using a variety of lighting technologies.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">One of the Hayward Gallery's most popular exhibitions, <em>Light Show</em> was visited by more than 190,000 people in 2013.&nbsp; The exhibition was curated by Dr Cliff Lauson, Curator, Hayward Gallery.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Light Show </em>will be opening on Saturday, September 19 at the Sharjah Art Foundation Art Spaces.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The exhibition will include work by David Batchelor, Jim Campell, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Bill Culbert, Olafur Eliasson, Dan Flavin, Ceal Floyer, Nancy Holt, Jenny Holzer, Ann Veronica Janssens, Brigitte Kowanz, Anthony McCall, Fran&ccedil;ois Morellet, Iv&aacute;n Navarro, Katie Paterson, Conrad Shawcross, James Turrell, Leo Villareal and Cerith Wyn Evans.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Light Show </em>is organised by the Hayward Gallery, London in association with the Sharjah Art Foundation, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates</p> <hr /> <p style="text-align: right;">مؤسسة الشارقة للفنون تقدم "معرض الضوء" الذي تنظمه غاليري هايوارد في لندن.</p> <p style="text-align: right;">يستكشف "معرض الضوء" القضايا التجريبية التي تنتج عن الضوء والظواهر التي يتخللها، وذلك من خلال تقديم منحوتات وأعمال تركيبية قائمة على استخدام الضوء في النحت ووضع أشكال محددة للفضاء بطرق مختلفة. يقدم هذا المعرض أعمالاً تم إنتاجها من ستينيات القرن الماضي حتى يومنا هذا، حيث تتضمن بيئات غامرة، وتماثيل ضوئية قائمة بذاتها، وإسقاطات ضوئية.</p> <p style="text-align: right;">حيث يضم المعرض أعمالاً تركيبية تعكس أجواءً خاصة، ومنحوتات لا تُلمس، يمكن الانتقال عبرها أو حولها. كما يمكن للزائرين أن يعيشوا تجربة الضوء بجميع أشكاله المكانية والحسية. وتستكشف الأعمال الفنية الفردية جوانب مختلفة من الضوء، كاللون والمدة والكثافة والإسقاط، فضلاً عن الظواهر الحسية التي يمكن أن تنشأ عنها. كما أنها تستخدم الضوء لتحاكي العمارة والعلوم والسينما، من خلال استخدام تقنيات إضاءة مختلفة.</p> <p style="text-align: right;">إن معرض الضوء هو أكثر معارض غاليري هايوارد شهرة، حيث زاره في العام 2013 قرابة 190.000 زائر. وهو من تقييم الدكتور كليف لاوسن، قيّم في غاليري هايوارد.</p> <p style="text-align: right;">سيتم افتتاح معرض الضوء يوم السبت الموافق 19 سبتمبر، في المباني الفنية لمؤسسة الشارقة للفنون. ويتضمن أعمالاً لكل من ديفيد باتشيلور، جيم كامبل، كارلوس كروز دييز، بيل كلبيرت، اولافور الياسون، دان فلافين، سيل فلوير، نانسي هولت، جيني هولزر، آن فيرونيكا يانسن، بريجيت كوانز، أنتوني ماكول، فرانسوا موريل، إيفان نافارو، كاتي باترسون، كونراد شوكروس، جيمس توريل، ليو فياريال، كريث وين ايفانز.</p> <div class="col-right">&nbsp;</div> Mon, 06 Jul 2015 17:43:12 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Claude Monet - National Gallery of Canada - October 30th - February 16th, 2016 <p style="text-align: justify;">In <em>Monet: A Bridge to Modernity</em>, the National Gallery of Canada brings together twelve seminal works from collections around the world to explore Claude Monet&rsquo;s innovative experiments with the motif of the bridge between 1872 and 1875, in the aftermath of the Franco-Prussian War.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">At the heart of this dossier show is Monet&rsquo;s historic painting <em>Le pont de bois</em> (1872), currently on long-term loan to the Gallery. In this and other works painted during a three-year period in Argenteuil, a small town on the outskirts of Paris, Monet emerges as a methodical artist who used the local bridges to work out his aesthetic concerns. What resulted were compositions of startling modernity that cemented Monet&rsquo;s status as one of the leaders of the avant-garde.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Monet&rsquo;s paintings are accompanied by nineteenth-century photographs, illustrations, guide books, Japanese prints and postcards. A truly immersive experience, <em>Monet: A Bridge to Modernity</em> provides a fresh view of some of the Impressionist&rsquo;s most beloved works from a pivotal period in his career.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Organized by the National Gallery of Canada.</p> Mon, 06 Jul 2015 17:33:42 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Edward Burne-Jones, John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Poynter, Frederic Leighton - National Gallery of Canada - October 9th - January 3rd, 2016 <p style="text-align: justify;">Encompassing the entire Victorian era, this exhibition charts the broad evolution of British draftsmanship and illustrates the new appreciation developed for the art of drawing during the reign of Queen Victoria, from 1837 to 1901. While inviting contemplation of artists operating within the Aesthetic Movement and the <em>Arts and Crafts </em>Movement, the exhibition highlights the work of Pre-Raphaelite geniuses, Edward Burne-Jones, John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, as well as that of Academic champions Edward Poynter and Frederic Leighton. Through its range of subject matter, techniques and functions &ndash; from preparatory sketches to highly finished drawings intended as works of art in and of themselves &ndash; <em>Beauty&rsquo;s Awakening </em>expresses the richness, diversity and flair of Victorian draftsmanship as seen through the eyes of a discerning collector.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Organized by the National Gallery of Canada.</p> Mon, 06 Jul 2015 17:30:54 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Frederick H. Evans - National Gallery of Canada - May 28th - September 13th <p style="text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.gallery.ca/en/see/collections/artist.php?iartistid=1678" target="_blank">Frederick Evans</a> (British, 1853&ndash;1943) was a man of deep intellectual inquisitiveness. His delicate but intense platinum and photogravure prints represent the conjunction of at least two streams of philosophical inquiry dear to the Victorians: the conundrum of natural laws and their relevance to and manifestation in the physical world and the connections between the various branches of scientific and artistic expression. Through his picture taking, Evans sought a spiritual harmony between these apparent dichotomies.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">While he earned a living for a period of time as a bookseller, his interests extended beyond literature to music, art and the philosophy of natural science. His first foray into photography was in 1883, when he bought himself a camera with which to make photomicrographs.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">As he acquired greater mastery of the process of photography, he also honed his powers of observation, capturing with ever increasing rigour cathedral interiors and facades, forests and landscapes. He was also a printer of sublime sensitivity, making prints that lead the eye across the &ldquo;infinitely related planes&rdquo; of Gothic columns at one moment, and then in another, into the complex details of dense foliage.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Organized by the National Gallery of Canada</p> Mon, 06 Jul 2015 17:22:01 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Marc Chagall - National Gallery of Canada - May 28th - September 13th <div style="text-align: justify;">A pioneer of modernism, Marc Chagall formulated his own symbolic system in which reverie and playfulness often reigned, presenting an ethereal, richly coloured vision of the world. The set of lithographs titled Daphnis &amp; Chlo&eacute; is considered Chagall&rsquo;s most important graphic work. Through fanciful compositions and bright hues, the artist illustrates the pastoral idylls of the goatherd Daphnis and the shepherdess Chlo&eacute; on the island of Lesbos, as recounted in a second-century Greek tale. These illustrations highlight Chagall&rsquo;s unique style, setting him apart from the main 20th-century pictorial currents followed by some of his contemporaries, such as Matisse and Picasso. The exhibition presents, in chronological order, the entire series of 42 lithographs, as well as a title page adorned with a drawing by Chagall.</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">Organized by the National Gallery of Canada.</div> Mon, 06 Jul 2015 17:18:52 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list - National Gallery of Canada - April 9th - August 30th <p style="text-align: justify;">Since 2000, the Governor General&rsquo;s Awards in Visual and Media Arts have added a prestigious yet very human dimension to the history of visual and media arts in Canada. Six prizes acknowledge artists for their remarkable career achievements in fine or applied arts, film, video, audio, or new media and have included the Saidye Bronfman Award for excellence in the fine crafts since 2007. A seventh prize honours an outstanding contributor to the visual and media arts through voluntary or professional activities. Created by the Governor General and the Canada Council for the Arts, which funds and administers the prizes, these awards offer all of us an occasion to celebrate artistic excellence in Canada.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The exhibition is organized by the National Gallery of Canada in collaboration with the <a href="http://ggavma.canadacouncil.ca/" target="_blank">Canada Council for the Arts</a> and the Governor General of Canada.</p> <div style="text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.ngcmagazine.ca/exhibitions/governor-general-s-awards-a-precise-beauty" target="_blank">NGC Magazine Article</a></div> Mon, 06 Jul 2015 17:15:49 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list
