Helen Pashgian explores the nature of perception by using natural and artificial light to illuminate reflective, translucent or transparent industrial materials such as fiberglass, polyester resin, plastic, glass and other substances.  A pioneer of the Light and Space Movement of the 1960s, Pashgian and others within this small group of Southern California artists sought to make the spectators’ sensory experience the focus of their work. This exhibition presents a selection of her paired columns, luminous seven foot structures that refract light in surprising ways due to their internal copper rods, and related works. 

Helen Pashgian: Light Invisible is organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
