Anthony McCall

Born Apr 14, 1946

Anthony McCall is a British-born New York based artist known for his ‘solid-light’ installations, a series that he began in 1973 with "Line Describing a Cone," in which a volumetric form composed of projected light slowly evolves in three-dimensional space.
Occupying a space between cinema, sculpture, and drawing, his work's historical importance has been recognised in such exhibitions as "Into the Light: the Projected Image in American Art 1964–77, ” Whitney Museum of American Art; "The Expanded Screen: Actions and Installations of the Sixties and Seventies, ” Museum Moderner Kunst, Vienna; "The Expanded Eye," Kunsthaus Zurich; "Beyond Cinema: the Art of Projection, ” Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin; "The Cinema Effect: Illusion, Reality and the Projected Image, ” Hirshhorn Museum, Washington DC; and "On Line: Drawing Through the Twentieth Century, ” Museum of Modern Art.
