Brooks Outside: Evanescent
Evanescent is an immersive, outdoor light and sound experience inspired by the beauty, fragility, and transience of the natural world. Resembling oversized clusters of bubbles, the installation invites visitors to walk around, through, and under the iridescent spheres that will be installed on the museum’s plaza on September 29 through October 16. The work is covered in dichroic film—a material that refracts the sunlight into beams of different wavelengths, creating a rainbow of different colors that emulates the unique and captivating surface of a bubble. At night, the bubbles are illuminated from within, creating a dynamic show of colored light choreographed to an ethereal soundscape.
Evanescent is created by Atelier Sisu, a design firm based in Sydney, Australia, led by two award-winning artists Renzo B. Larriviere (b. 1985, Peru) and Zara Pasfield (b. 1995, Sydney, Australia). It is part of the studio’s Ephemeral Bubbletecture series created in 2021.

Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?
The American art theorist Linda Nochlin (1931-2017) posed this question as the title of a pioneering article in 1971. This essay was considered one of the first major works of Feminist art history, it has become a set text for those who study art internationally, and it is influential in many other fields.
