Exhibits & Special Events

The Panza Collection: An Experience of Color and Light

November 16, 2007 - February 28, 2008

Described by some as a “modernist Medici,” Count Panza’s collection of contemporary art, especially works of art from mid-20th century, mirrors that of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and has been the impetus this exhibition.  Organized by Albright-Knox Senior Curator Doug Dreishpoon, it will include approximately 75 works by 17 American artists represented in the Panza Collection.  Color and light were the key concepts used to plan this exhibition, which will consist of paintings, sculptures, and artists’ installations. Beginning with artworks by pioneers in the use of actual light from the 1960s -- fluorescent light in works by Dan Flavin; Bruce Nauman’s use of neon light; and the ethereal natural and artificial light installations of James Turrell -- the exhibition continues to the present with the visual light embodied in monochromatic paintings and sculptures by such artists as David Simpson, Phil Sims, and Anne Truitt.
