Please join us for an artist talk with Erwin Redl at 21c Museum Hotel, in partnership with Oklahoma Contemporary. The talk is presented in conjunction with the opening of Redl’s newest installation, Whiteout, at Oklahoma Contemporary’s Campbell Art Park.
From October 2018 to March 2019, Oklahoma Contemporary will partner with Madison Square Park Conservancy to bring Erwin Redl’s installation Whiteout to Campbell Art Park, at NW 11th and Broadway. Whiteout is comprised of hundreds of transparent white spheres, each embedded with a discrete, white LED light and suspended from a square grid of steel poles and cabling. The orbs are not fixed and can move with the wind currents from their positions of one foot above the ground plane. The white LEDs are animated in large-scale patterns, superimposing a virtual movement on top of the kinetic movement of the spheres. The sequence of light is an incandescent treatment of urban public space across the dark seasons of the late fall and winter.
