29 Sept-10 Nov. The Gagosian Gallery Rome presents an exhibition of new leaded-glass works by Richard Wright.
Born in 1960, the Turner Prize-winning British artist is best known for his site-specific paintings and applied metal-leaf schemes often last only as long as the exhibition.
However recently he has begun working in leaded glass, exploring its fleeting light effects and experimenting with the shifting patterns it creates.
The works on display at the Gagosian Rome are described as Wright's "most elaborate to date", with each of the leaded-glass panels comprising hundreds of handmade geometric glass elements varying in transparency and texture.
Ahead of his Gagosian exhibition, Wright will appear in conversation at a public event at the British School at Rome on 28 September at 18.30.
