Geometry of Light fundraiser
December 13, 2018

 

Thursday, December 13, 2018. Event starts at 6 pm.
Tickets: $25 (See below for additional donation options)





 

Luftwerk and MAS Context, in collaboration with the Mies van der Rohe Society, invite you to an event that includes the announcement of their upcoming project Geometry of Light and the screening of the documentary Mies on Scene. The event will take place at the historic Robert F. Carr Memorial Chapel of St. Savior at IIT, the only building ever designed by Mies van der Rohe for religious services (65 E 32nd St, Chicago, IL 60616).

 

During the event, Petra Bachmaier, Sean Gallero, and Iker Gil will share details of their upcoming art installation at the 1929 Barcelona Pavilion designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Despite only existing for eight months, it influenced generations of architects and changed the history of the discipline. The pavilion was reconstructed on its own original site in 1986.

Architect Dirk Lohan, grandson of Mies van der Rohe, will share insights about the Barcelona pavilion as an emblematic work of the Modern Movement as well as a critical project in the career of Mies van der Rohe.

The 2018 documentary Mies on Scene, produced by the Fundació Mies van der Rohe and Nihao Films, will be screened in Chicago for the first time during this event. The film explores the pavilion and the Barcelona that made possible its construction in 1929 and its reconstruction in 1986.

100% of the cost of the tickets will be used to finance Geometry of Light. Additionally, donations will be accepted onsite and online. MAS Context is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization and donations are tax-deductible.

Thank you Normal for creating the identity of the project.

The INsite flip book is an editioned artist book that tells the story of Luftwerk’s 2014 exhibition INsite at Mies Van der Rohe’s historic Farnsworth House. One side uses select stills of the documented projection, while the “flip” side is a page-by-page series of sequential stills from the content’s pure rendering. As the viewer quickly thumbs through its pages, a moving display of light unfolds, mirroring the kinetic energy, movement, and aesthetic found within INsite and with other Luftwerk light installations.

Winner of the 2016 STA 100 competition.

 

About Mies on Scene
Mies on Scene, a 57-minute documentary directed by Pep Martín and Xavi Campreciós, tells the story of the Barcelona Pavilion, a building that changed the history of architecture. Its construction and subsequent reconstruction in two key moments of Barcelona immerse us in a reflection on the perception of art, space and the concept of masterpiece.

 

 

About Geometry of Light
Geometry of Light is an immersive intervention on Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion. Organized by the Fundació Mies van der Rohe and MAS Context, it is envisioned as a contemporary lens for this important masterpiece, the work highlights and expands upon the architectural and material features of this building. This intervention of projected light and sound enlivens and transforms the essential elements of the pavilion.

 

 

Luftwerk is the artistic vision of Petra Bachmaier and Sean Gallero. Luftwerk’s art practice focuses on the exploration of what makes a space a place and how art plays a vital role within urban and natural environments. With each individual project, Luftwerk discovers and accentuates the unique connections between architecture, environment and the communities, which interact within these places, transforming their experiences of space and site through light and sound.
