Anthony McCall: Solid Light Works

Hepworth Wakefield

NOW CLOSED

This will be the first UK exhibition of Anthony McCall’s work in over a decade and will include the UK premiere of three new ‘solid light’ installations. McCall describes his practice as existing in the space where cinema, sculpture and drawing overlap. He is best known for his large-scale, immersive sculptural light installations that invite visitors to become active participants. At the heart of the exhibition, two galleries will be devoted to a survey of his graphic works. These rooms will emphasise the importance of drawing for McCall, both as a way to imagine three-dimensional form and to explore temporal structure. The exhibition will demonstrate McCall’s meticulous planning of how a drawn line or shape will behave when rendered as though it were a physical three-dimensional structure. Find out more about the Anthony McCall exhibition from Hepworth Wakefield’s website.
