The Island Project: Point of Departure featured in T Magazine

In Sunday's edition of T: The New York Times Style Magazine, art critic Andrew Russeth writes about Holt/Smithson Foundation's Island Project: Point of Departure.

Russeth writes, "The foundation has approached five revered artists of different ages and practices — the multimedia artist Renée Green; the filmmaker and draftsperson Tacita Dean; the visual and performance artist Joan Jonas; Oscar Santillán, whose work explores the gap between science and ecosystems; and Sky Hopinka, who looks at identity and the natural world through many mediums — with a remarkably open-ended proposal: that they spend a couple of years learning and thinking about the island and in response propose any kind of work they can dream of, on the island or off, to be realized in some form or merely imagined."

Upcoming Exhibition: Nancy Holt "Mirrors of Light" at Sprüth Magers, Berlin

Holt/Smithson Foundation, Monika Sprüth, and Philomene Magers are delighted to announce Nancy Holt’s (1938– 2014) first solo exhibition at the Berlin gallery. Mirrors of Light presents the room-scale installation with the same title, a work from 1973/74 that is crucial to understanding Holt’s notion of perceptual experience. Holt’s practice navigates the complexities of light as artistic medium, physical reality, and aesthetic concept. It is an architectonic structure that channels projected light into a complex spatial experience.
