"Radiant Space" highlights 10 works by nine artists who embrace perception, light, color, and materiality through stripped-down aesthetics. Utilizing Plexiglas, polyester resin, archival pigments and vacuum-formed plastic they produce 2D and 3D works that give nod to Minimalist sensibilities while honoring the Light & Space movement of the 1960s.
