    Munro’s fourth solo US exhibition opens on 12 October through January 10 2015 at Hermitage Museum and Gardens, Norfolk, Virginia from October 2014.

    Inspired by Hermitage’s unique location by the sea, the exhibition is a ten piece collection of works, three of which will have be shown for the first time in the US.

    Two of the artworks Wave and Lighthouse were created specifically by Munro in response to the unique land and seascapes surrounding the Museum and Gardens.  Munro’s iconic installations Field of Light and Water-Towers have been re-imagined for the unique spaces offered by the Hermitage.

    The Museum and Gardens will also debut Ferryman’s Crossing II in the Mansion,  Munro’s recent exploration onto language and light.

    Light Shower, an interior artwork and permanent acquisition will be hung in the entrance hall to the mansion.

  • Edinburgh city centre to be transformed by Bruce Munro exhibition

    Field of Light, by Bruce Munro, will make its debut appearance in Scotland next month. His iconic optical fibre based installation will be exhibited within Edinburgh’s St Andrew Square from 3 February to 27 April 2014.

    This is the first time Field of Light has been exhibited in an urban context, the piece has been conceived to create an immersive experience, inviting people to wander through St Andrew Square along the existing pathways and view the space in a new way.

    Of the opportunity to present his artwork within Edinburgh, Munro said: “The Field of Light is a bit of a chameleon in that the space changes the work more than the work changes the space. This is an added bonus for me because each new iteration we create delivers new surprises and gives one the distinct feeling that there is life force pulsating within the installation”.

    The exhibition, which is free to view, is being funded by the City of Edinburgh Council with support from Marketing Edinburgh and Essential Edinburgh.
