Fall Invitational—“Raqs Media Collective: Luminous Will”
September 17–October 17, 2015
Mrs. E. Ross Anderson Auditorium + Barbara and Steven Grossman Gallery
“Luminous Will” refers to an eponymous work by Raqs Media Collective, where the hands of the clock index words that become phrases. The question of what is or can be a 'luminous will'—an illuminated, iridescent desire for life itself—is central to the constellation of works that constitute the exhibition. The artists will transform the galleries into a habitat for thoughtfulness, affect, and the elaboration of a playful sense of plenitude. Opening Reception: September 17, 2015, 5–7 pm.
