still from video installation
 
The Renaissance Society, Lismore Castle Arts, and the 2010 Glasgow International Festival of Contemporary Art, and Van Abbemuseum co-commissioned and co-produced Irish artist Gerard Byrne (b. 1969) to create this new multi-channel film installation titled A thing is a hole in a thing it is not. As this title--a quotation of Carl Andre's famous dictum--suggests, Byrne's attention here will be on the historical reception of Minimalism as a movement, a history that is resonant within the context of The Society's early engagement with that movement's artists.
