Bloomberg Commission: Sculpture

23 May

American sculptor Josiah McElheny (b. 1966) transforms the Whitechapel Gallery into a kaleidoscopic hall of mirrors. Seven large-scale mirrored sculptures are arranged as multiple reflective screens on which he projects reconfigured abstract films.

The Past was a Mirage I’d Left far Behind exhibition is commissioned by Bloomberg, the pioneering arts sponsor, which invited an international artist to create an annual site-specific artwork inspired by the rich history of the former library.

In Whitechapel until 20 July 2012 Admission Free
