Jan Tichy: Politics of Light

What exactly are the “politics of light?” According to Israeli artist Jan Tichy, it’s the seen v. unseen, the relationship between architecture and social structure. In his new solo exhibition, presented by No Longer Empty and the Richard Gray Gallery, Tichy uses a diverse range of media to explore these themes through visually stunning digital light sculptures and site-specific installation. Get lost in the obscurity.

Exhibition Hours: Wednesday – Saturday, 2-7pm (closed Thanksgiving weekend)

Richard Gray Gallery and No Longer Empty are pleased to present Politics of Light, a solo exhibition of Israeli artist, Jan Tichy. Tichy’s installations are a fluid integration of diverse media incorporating animation, film, photography, and sculpture, all invested with the presence of light. Featuring single-channel videos, digital light/sculpture installations, and site-specific work, Politics of Light examines the seen and unseen through a social, political, and visual lens.

Additional programming, including panel discussions and youth-oriented workshops, will explore concepts

related to site and architecture and its implications for social structure.


Politics of Light will be the inaugural exhibition of NLE Presents. Complementing No Longer Empty’s thematic group exhibitions, this new series will focus on solo shows for artists whose work we would like to present in-depth. Precursors leading to the formalization of NLE Presents include Remember the Upstairs Lounge in 2011 and XYZ:NYC 10 Downing in 2012.
