JOSHUA WHITE AND GARY PANTER’S LIGHT SHOW

FEBRUARY 10 – APRIL 29, 2012


Joshua White and Gary Panter’s Light Show is a new exhibition organized especially for the Museum by two great pioneers of multimedia art. White and Panter have been working together since the late 1990s, and this exhibition is their largest collaborative project to date.

Occupying nearly all of the Museum’s 22,000 square foot area, this immersive installation features a “permanent” light show designed by White (of Woodstock and Fillmore East fame) that will be on view through the entirety of the exhibition’s run. Panter, whose prolific output is most recognized in the set design for Pee-wee’s Playhouse, will construct a funhouse of his imagination. Bridging these two worlds is a historical corridor, filled with ephemera illuminating their long-running careers. Materials from the archives of both artists will be on display to illustrate the range and depth of their work.

As intended by White and Panter, the exhibition will serve as a platform for performances by guests working in a variety of media and disciplines, including musicians, video artists, comedians and engineers, who are invited to interact with the work and activate the space.


Joshua White and Gary Panter’s Light Show is supported by a generous grant from The Taubman Foundation.

Additional funding for the exhibition and related programs is provided by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Masco Corporation Foundation, McGregor Fund and Edith S. Briskin/Shirley K. Schlafer Foundation.
