Dana Carter, Waiting for Daylight, (detail of video still), 2011January 18 – April 27, 2014

SpotLight presents ten artists whose use of light amplifies a specific site and its history, a private experience of place, or a response to an architectural space. The light-based sculptures, installations, and videos in SpotLight transform something ephemeral, commonplace or often overlooked into poetic statements about memory, perception, technology and the built environment. LED lights, laser levels, light boxes and neon tubes serve as sculptural material for some artists, others record or recreate the light conditions of a particular place or moment. SpotLight presents new and recent work by Paola Cabal, Dana Carter, Spencer Finch, Dana Major, Daniel Miller, Jeroen Nelemans, Jason Peot, Morgan Sims, Jan Tichy, and Monika Wulfers.

Opening Reception: Friday, January 17, 2014 at 6:30 pm.
