• Montalvo Arts Center announces the exhibition Bruce Munro at Montalvo: Stories in Light

    Montalvo Arts Center, located on 175 acres in Silicon Valley’s Saratoga Hills, will host Munro’s first exhibition of artworks inspired by a single underlying source text, C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia. It will open to the public October 28, 2018.
    “Bruce Munro at Montalvo is the most ambitious, impactful exhibition Montalvo has ever presented,” said Executive Director Angela McConnell. “…we believe this show will elevate Montalvo—and the town of Saratoga—to increased relevance and prestige in the national and international art scene.”
    Montalvo Arts Center occupies a Mediterranean-style Villa, built in 1912 by Senator James Duval Phelan, surrounded by 175 stunning acres. Senator Phelan bequeathed the Villa and grounds to the people of California for the encouragement of art, music, literature, and architecture. This exhibition is Munro’s first on the U.S. West Coast.

    Munro is the lead artist for the inauguration of Jeju LAF, an outdoor art park showcasing immersive installations, sculptures, and event-based works that explore the medium of light, located on the volcanic island of Jeju, a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site.
    Jeju LAF, opening July 27, 2018, will run through August 15, 2019. For it, Munro presents two large-scale installations, Oreum and Water-Towers, as a response to his experiences of the island during the project’s 5-year development: notably, its volcanic mounds, or oreum, and typically strong island wind. Joining Munro are artworks by Jen Lewin, Tom Fruin, Byungchan Lee and Jason Krugman. The first art park of its kind in Asia, LAF presents these artists to amplify and transform the landscape of the nineteen-acre exhibition site.
    In 2015, Korea’s Public Art Magazine interviewed Munro about the project, read that article here.
