Space Shifters features twenty leading international artists whose work addresses the intersections of perception, sculptural space, and architecture. Beginning with the pioneering use of innovative sculptural materials in the 1960s – often concerned with transparency and reflection as well as minimal forms and gestures – the exhibition and catalogue explores the ways in which artworks engage or alter the viewer’s perception of the surrounding architecture. The development of these concerns is traced over the course of the past four decades and concludes with artworks from the present day.
Featuring essays by Cliff Lauson Senior Curator, Hayward Gallery, Dawna Schuld, Assistant Professor, Department of Visualisation at Texas A&M University and American art historian and curator Lynn Zelevansky.
