Shimon Attie at Miami Art Museum

From Jul 21st through Oct 8th, 2006The icy waters of Scandinavian fiords run through the steamy South Florida summer with Shimon Attie’s video installation Light Under Night. The three-screen video installation accompanied by a full surround-sound environment leads viewers into the in-between world of a subterranean hydroelectric plant in Rjukan, Norway. Light Under Night is exhibited with The Heroes of Telemark, a series of lightboxes that depict some of the few remaining employees at the hydroelectric plant. The exhibition is curated by Assistant Director for Programs and Senior Curator Peter Boswell as part of New Work, a series of projects by leading contemporary artists. Attie will introduce the exhibition with an artist talk at 6:30pm during the exhibition’s members’ preview on Thursday, July 20th from 5:00 to 8:30 p.m. For more information, please call: 305.375.3000
