Oh, I certainly hope someone brings this exhibit to New York. Neon: La materia luminosa dell’arte, currently at MACRO (Museo d’arte contemporanea Roma) includes works of more than fifty international artists who have made this simple artificial light source (neon)—typically used for signage—into the contemporary luminous art matter that it has become. Some of the artists represented are: Stefan Brüggemann, Bruce Nauman, Maurizio Cattelan, Dan Flavin, Claire Fontane, and, of course, at least forty-five more spanning almost sixty years, from the 1960s to the present.

The exhibit will be on view in Rome through November 11, 2012.
