ANTHONY MCCALL
British artist Anthony McCall (b. 1946), a key figure in the London Film-makers Co-operative in the 1970s, has developed a cross-disciplinary practice in which film, sculpture, installation, drawing and performance overlap.
 
For Tanya Leighton Gallery, McCall has developed a special new edition, drawn from his ‘solid light’ film series and dating back to 1973, the same year that the now-legendary Line Describing a Cone was made. Found Solid Light Installation, a pigment print on paper, is an edition of 25 (plus 2 AP’s) signed and numbered by the artist. Dimensions: 41.6 x 32.9 cm. Courtesy Sean Kelly Gallery, New York. The first 5 of the edition is available through Tanya Leighton Gallery, Berlin.
 
A renewed interest in the work of Anthony McCall has resulted in many screenings of his individual projections at museums and galleries internationally, as well as inclusion in major group exhibitions, such as Into the Light: the Projected Image in American Art, 1964-77, Whitney Museum, New York, 2001-02; X-Screen: The Expanded Screen: Actions and Installations of the Sixties and Seventies, Museum Moderner Kunst, Vienna, 2003-4; Expanded Cinema: Film as Spectacle, Event, Performance, Hartware Medien Kunstverein, Dortmund, 2004; Eyes, Lies and Illusions, Hayward Gallery, London, 2004; The Expanded Eye, Kunsthaus Zürich, 2006, and Projections: Beyond Cinematic Space, Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin, 2006-07; Serpentine, London, 2007-08.
