Bookstein Projects is pleased to announce a solo-exhibition by Stephen Antonakos at the Neuberger Museum of Art.

This exhibition will remain on view from January 28 - June 24, 2018.

Stephen Antonakos: Proscenium features a large-scale, site-specific work originally created in 2000 for the Neuberger’s vast Theater Gallery. A pioneer in the use of neon as a fine art material, Antonakos’ (1926-2013) career spanned over five decades, during which time he created numerous illuminated works for indoor and outdoor spaces across the globe. Named for a type of Greek stage, Proscenium will animate the darkened space of Theater Gallery with saturated color, glowing light, and calligraphic line. 

Stephen Antonakos: Proscenium is organized by the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College, State University of New York, and curated by Avis Larson, Assistant Curator and Helaine Posner, Chief Curator. Generous support for this project is provided by ArtsWestchester with support from Westchester County Government, the Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art and by the Purchase College Foundation.
