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.
