Light and Landscape
Opening on May 12th, Storm King’s major 2012 exhibition is devoted to work by artists who use a variety of strategies to engage with light as a central component of their work. Some twenty works by both emerging and established artists—ranging from sculpture to installation to video, and including examples created specifically for the Storm King landscape—will be installed across Storm King’s grounds and in its historic and lightfilled Museum Building. Some of the artists focus on the perceptual and aesthetic qualities of sunlight, while others take a conceptual approach that translates the energy of natural light into other art forms, including music. Together, their diverse works will encourage viewers to contemplate not only their natural surroundings and the visual effects of sunlight, but also its vast impact on our daily lives and ecosystem.
