Experimental Station
28.10.2011-09.04.2012
Estación experimental [Experimental Station] presents the work of those artists whose work is inspired by an irrepressible impulse that connects them to the purest part of scientific research. Steering away from pre-established guidelines in contemporary art, these creators share a certain fascination in their work for extra-artistic themes – not only for what happens in the field of reality but also in the beyond.

Anthony McCall. Light Sculptures
18.03.2011-09.01.29012
This monumental installation was conceived specifically for exhibition room 1B at the Art Centre for the exhibition Noches eléctricas [Electric Nights]. Since the beginning of the 1970s, Anthony McCall (United Kingdom, 1946) has been using film to create animated light sculptures that bring to the cinema the aesthetical principles of Minimalism: in an exhibition space saturated with smoke, the light beam creates an ethereal volume. His early work, produced with 16mm film, consists of simple geometrical shapes that are all stemming out of the form of a cone. Since the early 2000s, McCall started to use digital tools to engineer more complex shapes. Also, the duration of his pieces has been extended and the projections are now vertical —from the ceiling to the floor— in this way enhancing the architectural quality of his work.
