Monte Large: GLOW + Gas Lamp On West Alabama


In conjunction with FotoFest, GLOW at space125gallery is a video-based installation that portrays warmth and humor. Artist Monte Large elected to work in the subdued palette of winter to combat the lull in energy associated with the limited light of the season, and to heighten the light levels and colors of the exhibition. GLOW invites interaction, movement and interpretation.

space125gallery will be open for extended hours on Friday, April 2 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. to allow visitors to see the exhibition along with Large's Individual Artist Grant work, Gas Lamp.

Utiliizing light, Large transformed an abandoned 1940's-era gas station into a beacon, playfully provoking passing viewers to engage with the work.

"Some didn't know if they should approach it, others used it as a sort of stage to showcase themselves dancing or acting. This was precisely the idea of the exhibit. It allowed the viewer to make of it what they wanted," noted Large.
