About Anthony McCall

McCall was born in the UK and lives and works in Manhattan. He is known for his "solid-light works," a series 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 sculpture, cinema, and drawing, his work’s historical importance has been recognized in such exhibitions as Into the Light: the Projected Image in American Art 196477, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2001–2); The Expanded Screen: Actions and Installations of the Sixties and Seventies, Museum Moderner Kunst, Vienna (2003–4); The Expanded Eye, Kunsthaus Zurich (2006); Beyond Cinema: the Art of Projection, Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin (2006–7); The Cinema Effect: Illusion, Reality and the Projected Image, Hirshhorn Museum, Washington DC (2008); and On Line, New York Museum of Modern Art (2010–11). McCall’s work has also been shown at Centre Pompidou, Tate Britain, and SFMoMA, among others.
