The Dayton Art Institute is organizing an innovative exhibition year in 2016 centering on the theme of the classical elements — fire, air, water, earth and ether — with an emphasis on unique viewer interactions and immersive experiences.
Into the Ether: Contemporary Light Artists
April 2–June 26, 2016
The year of the elements begins with Into the Ether: Contemporary Light Artists, highlighting fire, air and ether through an investigation of light, a primary aesthetic principle in art. Grounded by the Light and Space movement of the 1960s in California, Into the Ether features artists who examine atmospheric changes, human perception, and individual experiences. Showcasing the work of contemporary artists James Turrell, Robert Irwin, Leo Villareal, Erwin Redl, Daniel Rozin, and Diane Willow, the exhibition showcases experiments with immersive environments and atmospheric qualities, creating unique experiences for each museum patron.
