Anthony McCall:

Robert Z. Hawkins Gallery | Floor 3

Swell transports visitors to a different time and place. Inside a darkened gallery, beams of light intersect with a hazy mist to create a mesmerizing interplay of light and shadow. For some visitors, Swell evokes the experience of slowly floating across an ocean current or soaring through an expansive galaxy beyond our universe.

Anthony McCall (born 1940) is a British-born artist known for his ‘solid-light’ installations that he began in 1973. In 2024, McCall has solo museum exhibitions on view at the Tate Modern in London, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, and the Museum of Art, Architecture, and Design in Lisbon, Portugal. Swell was commissioned by the Nevada Museum of Art for its permanent collection in 2017.

This presentation of Swell is presented in conjunction with the exhibition: Deep Time: Sea Dragons of Nevada.
