Opening Thursday, November 12th, from 6 PM - 8 PM
Professor W.J.T. Mitchell will reflect on Infinite Cube (2014), a captivating sculpture comprised of a seemingly endless grid of light in the Smart Museum of Art’s collection. Mitchell will discuss the sculpture’s origin, which was inspired by a concept developed by his late son Gabriel and realized by artist Antony Gormley.
After the talk, join Mitchell at the Smart Museum for a special viewing of the sculpture and a reception celebrating the release of two new books from the University of Chicago Press: “Antony Gormley on Sculpture” and Mitchell’s “Image Science.”
Presented by the Smart Museum of Art and the University of Chicago Press.
