Join Lumen and curator Stephen Nowlin for a seminar focused on the current group exhibition, SKY, at the Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery at ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, California. The seminar will take place on Tuesday August 25, 2020 from 8pm-10pm BST / 12-2pm PT via Zoom.
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. Lumen is an art collective focused on themes of astronomy and light, regularly exhibiting in churches as well as galleries. The members of Lumen are Louise Beer, Melanie King, and Rebecca Huxley.
SKY 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.
