A Suprasensorial Experience

One of the highlights of this early DC spring is Suprasensorial: Experiments in Light, Color, and Space, the new exhibition at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. The show features large-scale installations by five artists, representing Argentina, Venezuela, and Brazil, who turned away from traditional art and turned toward subjective forms based on light, color, motion and space. The experience was, at turns, intense, wondrous, and fun. It's not often that you go to an art gallery and they tell you to touch the artwork! One of my favorite works has to be Carlos Cruz-Diez's (French, b. Venezuela 1923), Chromosaturation. It's a three dimensional work that plays with blue, magenta and green. It's a rather large work, with an interior and exterior space, with three windows that, when inside of the space, act more as mirrors.  And as you will see from the photos below, it's proof that color and mood go hand-in-hand.
