Event Details

Thursday, April 5, 2018, 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. | Artist Talk at 5:45

South Dakota Art Museum is hosting a free public reception celebrating the work of Gisela Colon. Ms. Colon will speak at 5:45. Light hors d'oeuvres and refreshments will be served. The exhibition, "Gisela Colon: PODS" is on display at the South Dakota Art Museum March 2 - July 8, 2018. 

Gisela Colon’s “pods” are large sculptural objects made of blow-molded acrylic plastic and iridescent and fluorescent pigments. Bulging forms reflect light from interior painted surfaces, seeming to glow from within. Shapes, colors and shadows morph before the viewer’s eyes as they move around the work. Colon is considered a successor of the California Light and Space movement and her works retain the movement’s emphasis on Minimalism, perception and the phenomenology of light, but her organic forms are a departure from its symmetrical, geometric tradition.
