Sparrow Night: Artists Working with Light (London, Ontario, Canada)

May 6, 2017 - August 27, 2017

“Sparrow night” is a term from folklore that describes a night storm featuring intense sheet lightning. The exhibition name sets off a trimester of programming focussing on the senses. Sparrow Night features two- and three-dimensional light-based works, including experimental painting, projections, kinetic installations, interactive sculptures, and innovative textiles and design.

The depiction of light has always been central in representational art. Sculptors have always considered the play of sun and shadow in relation to their three-dimensional forms. Spurred by scientific studies of colour and light and the growth of artificial illumination, for a century now many artists have regarded light itself as a main focus.
