If you’re in New York this weekend you should consider going to a really cool conference on light. Chee Pearlman, who put on the terrific Radical Craft conference for the Art Center College in Pasadena last spring, is working with Holly Hotchner of the Museum of Arts & Design and Tim Marshall of Parsons to put it on. MAD is one of my favorite NYC museums and Parsons, well, it’s one of the best design schools in the country. Chee, of course, is five-time winner of the National Magazine Award for her editorship of ID magazine in the day.
The Saturday conference has, among other discussions, David Rockwell of the Rockwell Group interviewing Jules Fisher (8 Tony awards for lighting for Broadway shows) about Storytelling with Light. There are presentations on The Light of Art, The Art of Light, Feeling The Light, Bright Lights, Big City, In Praise of Pyrotechnics and Luminaries (Murray Moss interviews Ingo Maurer). There’s even a talk about A Glow at the End of the Earth, about light deep in the sea.
There’s a Friday night reception at MAD, which is just down the street from MOMA, and cocktails closing on Saturday. All to network and have fun.
