Commissioned by the Nevada Museum of Art, New York-based artist Anthony McCall has created a new immersive light installation—a compelling example of a virtual environment. British-born McCall is known for his ‘solid-light’ installations. Occupying a space between sculpture, cinema and drawing, the new work will become part of the Museum’s Contemporary Art Collection.
Anthony McCall (born 1940) is a British-born artist known for his ‘solid-light’ installations, a series that he began in 1973 with his seminal Line Describing a Cone, in which a volumetric form composed of projected light slowly evolves in three-dimensional space.
McCall’s work is represented in numerous collections, including Tate, London, England; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt, Germany; Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona, Spain; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; SFMoMA, San Francisco; the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, France; the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Sweden; and the Hirshhorn, Washington, DC.
