The DAI’s “Year of the Classical Elements” began with Into the Ether: Contemporary Light Artists, highlighting fire, air and ether through an investigation of light, a primary aesthetic principle in art.
Grounded by the Light and Space movement of the 1960s in California, Into the Ether features artists who examine atmospheric changes, human perception, and individual experiences. Featuring the work of internationally acclaimed contemporary artists such as James Turrell, Robert Irwin, Leo Villareal, Erwin Redl, Daniel Rozin, and Diane Willow, the exhibition showcases experiments with immersive environments and atmospheric qualities, creating unique experiences for each museum patron.
“What makes Into the Ether unique is how it inspires playfulness and wonder in visitors of all ages.” – Amy Dallis, DaytonLocal.com
