This weekend JOSEPH highly recommends a visit to…
Light Show is the UK’s first ever exhibition of light-based art and features 25 illuminated installations and sculptures by a range of international artists. The show brings together some of the most visually stimulating artwork created – from recent pieces to rare past works that have been recreated especially for the exhibit. The work displayed explores the medium of light in various aspects such as colour, duration, shadows, natural and artificial illumination and projection.
Light Show includes work by David Batchelor, Jim Campell, Bill Culbert, Carlos-Cruz-Diez, Olafur Eliasson, Fischli and Weiss, Dan Flavin, Ceal Floyer, Nancy Holt, Jenny Holzer, Ann Veronica Janssens, Brigitte Kowanz, Anthony McCall, François Morellet, Iván Navarro, Philippe Parreno, Katie Paterson, Conrad Shawcross, James Turrell, Doug Wheeler, Cerith Wyn Evans, Leo Villareal.
