Glass Curtain Gallery / Invisible February 26 – April 25, 2015

Invisible explores the extreme edge of legibility in works by Chicago artists. While many of the works in Invisible are large in scale, the scope of work will only gradually emerge as visitors make their way through installations of sculpture, painting, video and drawing. The exhibition explores the visual delight and intellectual intrigue we find in the discovery of works that are both material and conceptual. Artists include: Paola Cabal, C. C. Ann Chen, Jessica Hyatt, Luftwerk and Kathleen McCarthy. Curated by Annie Morse

“… light and darkness, brightness and obscurity, or if a more general expression is preferred, light and its absence, are necessary to the production of color … Color itself is a degree of darkness.” Goethe

Big lights, bright city – Lights on Tampa 2015

February 20

Recurrence Luftwerk Render

Lights On Tampa 2015 is about connection: Connecting people to place, place to the arts, the arts to people. Art and technology are both avenues in which many things travel. Both are direct extensions of what we are and where are as a city. Recognizing that culture and innovation emerges from the community, Lights On provides a foundation for exploration of ideas and put them in the spotlight. The 2015 event was taking place two consecutive nights: February 20th and Saturday, February 21st, 2015 from 6:00 – 11:00 p.m.

Lights on Tampa 2015 participating artists include: Nick Cave, Wannemacher Jensen Architects, Creative Movement Company, Silvia Curbelo, Urban Conga, Luftwerk

Luftwerk presents Recurrence – a light art installation that evokes the tidal flow of the Hillsborough River through programmable kinetic LEDs. This elegant artwork was comprised of a grid of lights that flowed in a compressed rhythm to the tides of the Hillsborough River.
