4th – 14th March 2022
National Gallery of Australia
For the 2022 Enlighten Festival, Daniel Crooks was commissioned to illuminate the façade National Gallery of Australia.
Held in the Gallery’s 40th anniversary year, Crooks’ project – Structured Light – celebrates the design of the original National Gallery building by architect, Col Madigan. Using Madigan’s geometric language as a point of departure, Crooks transforms the Gallery façade through visual manipulations spanning geometry, perspective, colour and light. A score by Byron Scullin responds to Madigan’s brutalist architecture and sense of sacred geometry.
Daniel Crooks: Structured Light is part of The Balnaves Contemporary Series and is presented in partnership with Events ACT.cr
Curator: Elspeth Pitt, Curator, Australian Art
