Holy Cow. We found this skull-crushingly-awesome Pink Thing over at the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery, where it is part of Abstract Document, the latest exhibit of light-based artworks from the pioneering electronic artist Jim Campbell.
The piece actually changes color within a spectral range of pinks and pinkish-hues. Let’s go to the video!
For over twenty years, Jim Campbell has been exploring the medium of light and LED technology in relation to video and sculpture. His career personifies the metamorphosis of film and form into an immersive experience reflective of our digital culture. The ten works in Abstract Documentdepict one day at a recent political rally, rendered across multiple formats. It is a pretty groovy experience and you should be sure to go see if before it closes, especially if you enjoyed Mike Kelley’sSuperman Origin Story Exhibit from 2015, which I still cannot shut up about.
You can see Jim Campbell’s Abstract Document on Exhibit Through June 17th, 2017 at Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery, Located at 505 West 24th St, in the Chelsea Gallery District.
Art and Light — they go together. We were very excited to visit Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery for its new exhibition of new work by Jim Campbell, which opened March 7th, 2014. The show focuses on the pioneering artist’s most recent series of sculptural light installations. Campbell is considered one of the leading artists working today in the field of new media and his work is both fun and fascinating.
Many of Campbell’s works are motion sensitive to the activity in the gallery, so the images displayed will change as visitors move around or in front of the pieces.
This one is suspended from the ceiling.
The exhibition at Bryce Wolkowitz coincides with Jim Campbell’s first New York museum retrospective. Organized by the Museum of the Moving Image, Jim Campbell: Rhythms of Perception, on view from March 21 – June 15, 2014, spans three decades with an emphasis on his early experimental work. I will have to check that out.
New Work By Jim Campbell will be on Exhibit Through April 19th, 2014 at Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery, Located at 505 W 24th Street, In the Chelsea Gallery District.
