Keith Sonnier: Until Today is the first comprehensive museum survey for Keith Sonnier, a pioneering figure in conceptual, post-minimal, video and performance art of the late 1960s. Born in Grand Mamou, Louisiana in 1941, Sonnier was one of the first artists to incorporate light into sculpture: an innovation that forms the foundation of his subsequent work. Since the late 1960s, Sonnier has continued to forge a sculptural language that defies easy categorization. From his earliest investigations of fleeting and unstable materials like lint, latex and neon, to his later expressions of the way architecture, light and form come together to shape human experience, communication and interconnection, Sonnier’s art has radically reframed sculpture’s role and function.
