Illuminations is the first of a cycle of exhibitions dedicated to provoking enlightened dialogues among local and international artist surrounding the James TurrellÂ´s installation, Coconino, 2007, created with the latest LED technology.
This alluring installation, perhaps the closest approximation we have to the spectacle of a sunset, provides its spirit to Illuminations â€“whose title alludes to Walter BejaminÂ´s influent book. Paraphrasing him, we reunite art in the age of the most sophisticated artificial light. Illuminations displays multiple ways of inquiries on the implications of the use of electric light in contemporary art.
