Light Show

Feb 18, 2013


Light Show explores the experiential and phenomenal aspects of light by bringing together sculptures and installations that use light to sculpt and shape space in different ways. The exhibition showcases artworks created from the 1960s to the present day, including immersive environments, free-standing light sculptures and projections.

From atmospheric installations to intangible sculptures that you can move around and even through, visitors can experience light in all of its spatial and sensory forms. Individual artworks explore different aspects of light such as colour, duration, intensity and projection, as well as perceptual phenomena. They also use light to address architecture, science and film, and do so using a variety of lighting technologies.

Light Show includes works of: Ann Veronica Janssens, Anthony McCall, Bill Culbert, Brigitte Kowanz, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Ceal Floyer, Cerith Wyn Evans, Conrad Shawcross, Dan Flavin, David Batchelor, Doug Wheeler, Peter Fischli and David Weiss, François Morellet, Iván Navarro, James Turrell, Jenny Holzer, Jim Campbell, Katie Paterson, Leo Villareal, Nancy Holt, Olafur Eliasson and Philippe Parreno.
