Phōs: Light Today, curated by Conor King, will be a multidisciplinary exhibition examining the ways in which artists use and represent light. Phōs, from the Greek language, meaning light, inspired the title of this exhibition and is the thread that brings together a collection of artists exploring new possibilities in the mediums of photography, sculpture, painting, drawing, video, and installation. Throughout history artists have been concerned with the representation and manipulation of light, creating works that symbolize light, use it as a material both in its natural and artificial forms, and distort or alter it to better understand its characteristics and limits. With this exhibition we see contemporary artists continuing to experiment with the ways in which light can be seen and understood using new technologies, harnessing it in installations, and exploring it as material and subject matter. Phōs: Light Today aims to connect the works of artists engaged in experimentation with light and challenges viewers to participate in this continuing multi-medium exploration.
