David Bermant Foundation Fall 2023 Updates

In its ongoing efforts to promote the David Bermant collection and his dedication to supporting creators of kinetic and technology art, the Foundation remains committed to generating interest and attention. Here are some exciting projects to anticipate in 2024 that will further highlight artists and institutions engaged with science and technology.

1. COLOR, LIGHT, MOTION: I look forward to the continuation of this bi-monthly online series curated by Victoria Vesna. This program features artists, critics, and curators relating their contemporary work to pieces in the David Bermant collection.

2. ENTANGLED ATTRACTION:  Sally Weber’s new work, exhibited at the San Francisco Exploratorium from November 2022 through April 2023, is now on schedule for 2024 at the Butler.  Visitors enjoy the swirling ceiling installation and are captivated by the chaotic pattern of the lights, which create orbiting traces suspended in the air. The accompanying Soundscape completes the immersive experience with a non-repeating, expansive orchestration.
