LONG BEACH, Calif. – March 22, 2016 – Epson America, Inc. today announced it has partnered with the Sean Kelly Gallery to provide Pro G series large venue projectors for the exhibition LIGHT/WORK by Belgium-based artist David Claerbout, on view now through April 30 in New York City. LIGHT/WORK presents an overview of the artist’s recent film works, from his seminal work Travel to his newest piece Olympia, which will be on view for the very first time as part of the installation. The films are projected using four Epson Pro G projectors to create a compelling, mediagenic presentation.
“Claerbout is an internationally renowned video artist whose work is simply breathtaking,” said Janine Cirincione, Sean Kelly director. “For this installation, Claerbout and his technical team required projection solutions delivering high brightness and uncompromising image quality and determined the Epson large venue projectors fit the bill perfectly.”
Epson projectors offer three times higher color brightness than leading competitive projectors1. For this exhibition, Epson loaned the gallery three Pro G6970WU projectors and one Pro G6770WU projector, with both models providing Full HD support and HDBaseT™ connectivity for simple yet robust integration. The projectors offer brilliant image quality and high color brightness – both models boast 6,000 lumens of color brightness and 6,000 lumens of white light brightness2 – as well as additional features including built-in edge blending, 360-degree projection and diverse selection of inputs for projecting from multiple sources.
“As art mediums continue to diversify, so must the tools artists use. This is especially true when it comes to showcasing video artwork – artists require display solutions that offer true-to-life color and crisp images,” said Phong Phanel, product manager, Projectors, Epson America. “Our installation projectors are powerful performers, ideal for a range of venues requiring bright, flexible solutions and offering advanced connectivity and high image quality. We are thrilled Claerbout chose Epson projectors to showcase his work at the Sean Kelly Gallery.”
The exhibition, LIGHT/WORK, can be seen at the Sean Kelly Gallery now through April 30. For more information on the exhibition, visit http://www.skny.com/exhibitions/2016-03-19_david-claerbout/. For more information on Epson’s range of large venue projections, visit www.epson.com/largevenue.
