How cool could it bee to see videos projected on the Manhattan Bridge during a snowstorm? Here's your chance! LIGHT YEAR PRESENTS “PEERING BEHIND APPEARANCES”, a selection of single channel (silent!) videos projected onto the Manhattan Bridge on Thursday, January 5, 2017, from 6pm to 10pm. The best viewing area is located in the Pearl Street Triangle (Water St & Pearl St.) in DUMBO, Brooklyn.
Curated by Erin Dziedzic, Director of Curatorial Affairs, Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, Missouri, the show features artists Janaye Brown (NY), Craig Drennen (GA), Kevin Jerome Everson (VA), Victoria Fu (CA) and Lilly McElroy (KS).
The world expands through the lens of the video camera, creating changeable versions, skewed perspectives of reality, and revelations in instances. This group of works pulls from a bandwidth that looks into, beyond, and behind appearances of the everyday or the uncharted to deliver broader moments that peel back the veil of appearances giving depth to even our slightest glances.
The team from LIGHT YEAR (Leo Kuelbs Collection, Glowing Bulbs, John Ensor Parker) are happy to announce that LIGHT YEAR will now be screened each First Thursday and Friday of the month in Berlin at Fata Morgana (Torstrasse 170; Mitte)!
LIGHT YEAR is an ongoing project presented by 3_Search (Leo Kuelbs Collection, Glowing Bulbs and John Ensor Parker) in collaboration with the DUMBO Improvement District and NYC DOT. Originally created in celebration of the United Nations’ declaration of 2015 as the Year of Light and Light Art, LIGHT YEAR has hosted the work of over 100 artists and curators from around the world.
