Nancy Holt: Light and Language

29 Mar 2020–11 Sep 2020

Overview

Nancy Holt was an artist who rethought the limits and possibilities of art. Born in 1938, Holt was a key member of the Earth, Land and Conceptual art movements. For five decades she asked difficult questions about how we understand our place in the world. Her art continues to inspire and recalibrate the possibilities of what art can be, and where it can be found. Holt’s influence on artists working today is palpable. Light and Language invites A.K. Burns, Matthew Day Jackson, Dennis McNulty, Charlotte Moth, and Katie Paterson to explore ideas of light and language alongside Nancy Holt at Lismore Castle Arts, one of Ireland’s leading spaces for experimental contemporary art. This is the first time Holt’s work has been seen with twenty-first-century artists who have drawn from her legacies.
