ire and Light explores the work of internationally renowned artist, Otto Piene (b. Germany, 1928–2014), focusing on his major threads of production since the mid-1980s when he moved to Groton, MA. Piene’s relentless exploration of light through the elements of fire and air led to groundbreaking achievements in art and technology, as he continued to push the boundaries of visual perception and sensory experience through new media. Fire and Light offers a rare opportunity for visitors to experience Piene’s immersive installations, paintings, and sculptures.
In honor of Piene’s vision of participation and contemplation, the Fitchburg Art Museum invites you to join us for the following events.
Fire and Light is made possible thanks to the generous support of Elizabeth Goldring and the Otto Piene estate. The exhibition is sponsored in part by grants from Carol and Carl Canner, Patricia La Valley and Geoff Hargadon, and the Simonds Lecture Fund. Technical Support provided by Emerson College, Urban Arts Media Art Gallery.
