Constructing Infinity

Antony Gormley, After an idea by Gabriel Mitchell, Infinite Cube, 2014, Mirrored glass with internal copper wire matrix of 1,000 hand-soldered omnidirectional LED lights. Smart Museum of Art, The University of Chicago, Gift of Antony Gormley and W. J. T.

April 6, 2018
5:00 PM - 6:30 PM


During this intimate gallery experience, W.J.T. Mitchell and Janice Misurell-Mitchell will discuss the creative process that led to the Infinite Cube sculpture. 

A study of preparatory sketches and models produced by Gabriel Mitchell will reveal how the artist yearned to render the unending possibility and unnerving vastness of the infinite, and how these materials and conversations with sculptor Antony Gormley ultimately resulted in Infinite Cube

As part of this experience, Janice Misurell-Mitchell will perform two solo selections for flute:

Una voce perduta: in memoriam Ted Shen (2003)
 
The Light that Burns: in memoriam Gabriel Mitchell (2014)


FREE, and open to all. Light refreshments will be served.
