Space Shifters brings together a collection of sculptures and installations that explore our perception of space.

Using works by 20 artists over a period of 50 years, including some brand-new commissions, the exhibition focuses on art that has extended the legacy of this 'optical' minimalism in different ways. Many of them are constructed from translucent materials such as glass, acrylic and polyester resins. Other works make use of reflective materials like stainless steel and polished bronze — even some engine oil — enabling us to view our surroundings in new and unexpected ways.

Featured artists include Leonor Antunes, Larry Bell, Fred Eversley, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Jeppe Hein, Roni Horn, Robert Irwin, Ann Veronica Janssens, Anish Kapoor, Yayoi Kusama, Alicja Kwade, John McCracken, Josiah McElheny, Helen Pashgian, Charlotte Posenenske, Fred Sandback, Monika Sosnowska, Daniel Steegmann Mangrané, De Wain Valentine and Richard Wilson.
