Join Lumen and curator Stephen Nowlin for a seminar focused on the SKY exhibition at the Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery, ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, California. This seminar was funded by Arts Council England and our Patreon network. SKY is an exhibition that invites visitors to ponder both the provincial and universal elements of space above and around the Earth’s surface. This group exhibition will demonstrate how the unfolding realities exposed by new science are affecting change in the understanding of ourselves, our planet and beyond. SKY features works of contemporary art, science artefacts and historical objects displayed equally and side-by-side, blurring boundaries and distinctions between domains usually separated by convention and differing periods of history. During the seminar, we will hear from curator Stephen Nowlin as he introduces the exhibition. We will then hear presentations from artists Laura Parker, Rebeca Méndez, Lia Halloran and Carol Saindon. The exhibition includes works by Albert Bierstadt (1830-1902), Georg Braun (1541-1622) & Franz Hogenberg (1535-1590), George Ellery Hale (1868-1938), Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543), Albert Thomas DeRome (1885-1959), Angel Espoy (1879-1963) and Magnus von Wright (1805-1868). Additional contemporary artists and lenders presented include The European Space Agency, The Caltech Archives, GAIA Spacecraft, Lia Halloran, The Jonathan Art Foundation, Eleanor Lutz, Rebeca Méndez, Laura Parker, Christopher Richmond, Carol Saindon and Santa Barbara Museum of Art.
