Edison Price Lighting Gallery
Opening Reception
Thursday, January 18th, 2018

January 2018 - October 2018

Stainless steel laser cut outs, aluminum hand-spun cylinders, milled shavings, copper circuits -- these are the materials leftover from the manufacturing process. These too are the starting point, even the inspiration, behind the art of reVISION.

ReVISION features New York City-based artists who have worked with materials collected from Edison Price Lighting's Long Island City factory. The artists explored the factory to meet the craftspeople who first cut, bent, spun, burnished, and painted these raw metals to create architectural lighting fixtures. Each artist left the factory with surplus materials to create art of their own.
reVISION began as an exploration of the inherent and created connections between manufacturing and art. Yet after multiple visits by the artists, it evolved into something greater. reVISION became a point of connection--and in some cases, of collaboration--between people. The artists and the factory craftspeople recognized each other's respect for and mastery of the materials.
