Media Advisory - Photo Opportunity: Test Run for Lights on Tampa Installation at the Poe Parking Garage
WHO: Artist Pablo Valbuena of Madrid, Spain
Valbuena develops artistic projects and research focused on space,
time and perception and this is his first installation in the U.S.
Valbuena has presented his work recently at the 5th International
Seoul Biennale, Museum of the Moving Image, Ok Center for
Contemporary Art, Laboral Centro de Arte, Netherlands Media Arts
Institute, BankArt, Matadero Madrid, Museum of Contemporary Art
Taipei, and other exhibitions and public art projects in Singapore,
Canada, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, USA, Brazil and Spain.
WHAT: Test-run for N27057’00” W82027’41”, a 2011 Lights on Tampa project.
N27057’00” W82027’41” (longitude / latitude coordinates of the
Poe Parking Garage) is an investigation of light, space and perception.
Using large-scale projectors, Valbuena uses light as a physical
material, and appears to build space in the way that bricks build
walls and will bring a renewed emphasis to the exterior of the Poe
Parking garage façade located on Ashley Drive.
WHEN: Thursday, February 17, 2011
7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
WHERE: William F. Poe Parking Garage
800 North Ashley Drive
