Chris Fraser: In Passing

RICHARD SPEER
Thursday February 14
Disjecta
8371 N Interstate Ave.
 
If you haven’t seen Chris Fraser’s installation In Passing, run, don’t walk, to check out what is certain to be one of 2013’s most crowd-pleasing, trippy and sheer fucking gorgeous shows. The San Francisco-based artist worked with curator-in-residence Josephine Zarkovich to create an immersive experience, which viewers walk through. There’s a long, three-sided corridor on the gallery’s perimeter, with vertical and diagonal slots that spray prisms of colored light onto the interior walls. When you come to the hallway’s corners, the light plays tricks with your eyes, creating a foggy atmosphere that is pure optical illusion. It’s one part James Turrell, one part 2001: A Space Odyssey. You simply have to see it. Through March 3.
