White and Panter Bring ‘Light’ to MOCA Detroit

The Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit has more than twenty thousand square feet of exhibition space, and Joshua White and Gary Panter have taken over all of it. Don’t be misled by their rather nondescript names – these guys are legends. Gary Panter designed sets for Pee-Wee’s Playhouse and drew comics for Slash magazine in the ’70s; Joshua White created the Joshua Light Show, which was behind all of that trippy liquid oil concert lighting in the late ’60s and early ’70s, chiefly at the Fillmore East. So this show here, simply called “Joshua White and Gary Panter’s Light Show”, is not to, ahem, be taken lightly. (Geddit?) (FULL ARTICLE: Alanna Martinez, Blouin ARTINFO)
