to:Night, an exhibition that highlights contemporary artists’ representations of the night just opened at the Hunter College art galleries with a grande spectacle/fiasco including popcorn machines, donors, and bands. The show spans two locations, but if you have to make a choice, the exhibit at the MFA building was definitely the more interesting of the two with very interesting takes on the use of light in contemporary art. A pitch black room filled with four photos of the woods at night that are only slightly illuminated, exactly as the real experience itself truly transformed the idea of a photo as a flat object…a few rooms over this idea is seen again in cut out paper trees with a project that gives them texture and life.
