Anthony McCall
American, b. 1946

Best known as a pioneer in the history of experimental cinema and installation art, Anthony McCall began his career in the avant-garde London Filmmakers Cooperative in the 1970s. Shortly after moving to New York in 1973, he produced the first of his infamous “solid-light” installations, titled Line Describing a Cone (1973). Between 1973 and 1975, McCall produced a number of these works—in which 16mm films would be projected in haze-filled rooms and create the illusion of volume, with the projected light often expanding, contracting, or sweeping through the exhibition space. Toward the end of the 1970s, McCall began a 20-year hiatus. In the 1990s, he revisited his early series, this time using computer scripts and digital projections.
