Fujiko Nakaya: Veil
On view May 1 - November 30, 2014
Coinciding with the 65th anniversary of the Glass House and its 2014 tour season, the Glass House presents Fujiko Nakaya: Veil, the first site-specific artist project to engage the iconic Glass House itself, designed by Philip Johnson and completed in 1949. Veil will stage a potent dialogue with the Glass House, producing an opaque atmosphere to meet the building’s extreme transparency and temporal effects that complement its timelessness.
Fujiko Nakaya: Veil is generously supported by National Endowment for the Arts, Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, The Japan Foundation, and Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope®. Additional support is provided by Mee Industries, Inc.
Night (1947 – 2015)
A new work by Vincent Fecteau
On view May 1 - August 25, 2014
Night (1947 - 2015) is a sculpture-in-residence program, an unfolding exhibition inspired by the historic presence of the sculpture Night by Giacometti in the Glass House. Night (1947 - 2015) will be composed of a series of works by contemporary artists that contend with the legacy of Giacometti’s sculpture and Johnson’s architectural opus. On display for three to six months at a time, the sculptures in Night (1947 - 2015) will “disappear” after their run, making room for new work and new absences. The fourth sculpture in this series is a new work by Vincent Fecteau.
