Ten of my light sculptures from the series Columns of Thought, will be displayed at the University of Chicago’s Rockefeller Memorial Chapel. The exhibit will take place from March 27 through April 10, 2018. The reception will take place Wednesday, April 4, at 7:30 PM. All are welcome to attend.

The exhibit is described in the Chapel’s publication, Arts Rock:

“Rockefeller Chapel is proud to present Columns of Thought by Audrius V. Plioplys—a series of light sculptures 65 inches tall, each incorporating multiple layers of assemblage and representing a writer or artist whose influence has shaped Plioplys’ life and work, including Hieronymus Bosch, Samuel Beckett, Franz Kafka, and Sigmund Freud. In pigmented inks on polycarbonate, with LED color-changing lights, on poplar wood.

“The words of neo-conceptual artist Audrius Plioplys are held in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, and the British Library, London. This is his third installation at Rockefeller Chapel. Presented in conjunction with the Center for Cognitive and Social Neuroscience.”

Further information about this series can be found in this website’s art gallery.
