Ed Halter Interview
Tom McCormack of art:21 has just posted an interview with Ed Halter of Light Industry, wherein Ed discusses the history of the organization as well as his plans for 155 Freeman.
TM: What are your plans for your new place at 155 Freeman St?
EH: We’re excited to have a real, long-term lease because up until now, all our spaces have been donated affairs, and thereby somewhat tenuous. We’ll also be able to use the space as an office and work out of it. Since the building is being renovated over the summer, we’re doing another round of our “Couchsurfing” series at like-minded venues, beginning with this weekend’s installation of Anthony McCall’s Long Film for Ambient Light at Dia:Chelsea, a piece that is in certain ways emblematic of our essential goal, the transformation of a space into the state of cinema through a minimal but decisive intervention.
