The Most Important Artists of 2013 (So Far)

23. Brian Eno

Exhibitions: Video collaboration with the Red Bull Music Academy (May 30, 2013), 77 Million Paintings for Montefiore and Quiet Room for Montefiore at Montefiore Hospital in England (installed April 18, 2013)

Eno is know for his musical innovations, pushing the boundaries of sound as a medium. For his installations in a British hospital, he approached the work with a holistic view towards health, attempting to create a multi-dimensional "serene atmosphere" for healing.

His video project for the Red Bull Music Academy is "a generative work-making itself as you watch it—which explores a vast set of permutations of visual and sonic elements made by Eno." The short film displayed a kaleidoscope of randomly-generated images, an immersive multimedia experience that spanned music, visual art, and digitial art. -Leigh Silver
