Eliasson "Reality Projector" for Marciano

The Marciano Art Foundation has announced an Olafur Eliasson installation for next year. Eliasson will use two spotlights, color filters, and the existing architectural trusses to create an immersive 3D moving abstraction.

It's said that artists respond to big spaces, and art has outgrown the museum. The Eliasson piece will be the size of a small museum, occupying the 13,500-sq.ft. Theater Gallery now showing the multifarious "Jim Shaw: The Wig Museum." That's a lot of real estate for a couple of spotlights.

"Olafur Eliasson: Reality Projector" runs Mar. 1–Aug. 2018. (Shown is a detail of a scale model in Eliasson's studio.)
