THE PARTICLE AND THE WAVE
SATURDAY, JUNE 18 – FRIDAY, JULY 15, 2016
OPENING RECEPTION: SATURDAY, JUNE 18 – 7 TO 10PM
Index Art Center is pleased to present “The Particle and the Wave,” a group exhibition featuring artists who create work using the properties of light to evoke wonder. The exhibition brings together multi-media installations, sculpture and wall works in which light is both medium and subject. Curated by Wavelength, a collaborative project by Gianluca Bianchino and Jeanne Brasile, their curatorial model brings attention to the relationship between art and science via immersive exhibitions. Featured artists include Stanley Casselman, Andrew Demirjian, Sunil Garg, Jain Kwak, Greg Leshé, Ryan Roa, Christine Soccio – Romanell, Carol Salmanson, USCO & Eric Valosin.
“Beyond creating imagery, the works are unified through their use of light to draw attention to events in space and time.” Stanley Casselman’s “Deep Field” is an immersive electronic window into a subtly shifting field of colors and light that envelopes the viewer. Eric Valosin’s “Hyalo” series implicate viewers in projected tableaus that are activated by the audience. Christine Soccio-Romanell’s art uses reflective materials in site-responsive works that refract color and light. These, and the other works in the show, situate the viewer in a series of immersive experiences as they move throughout the exhibition.
Index Art Center was established in May 2009 by three of Redsaw Art’s former founders; Lowell Craig, Seth Goodwin, and DC Smith.

They wish to create an environment where the local community and artists of all media can come together and take part in a unique dialogue, one which affirms Newark as a center for contemporary art.

Hours are Thursdays 6 to 9pm, Fridays and Saturdays 1 – 4pm and by appointment. Admission is free and open to the public.
