artists & participants
Light Show explores the experiential and phenomenal nature of light, bringing together sculptures and installations that use light in different ways. The exhibition showcases artworks created from the 1960s to the present day in which light is used to sculpt and shape space.
From atmospheric installations to intangible sculptures that you can move around and even through, visitors will 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 has the power to affect our state of mind as well as alter how we perceive the world around us, and Light Show includes some of the most visually stimulating artworks created in recent years. It also includes rare works not seen for decades and re-created specially for the Hayward Gallery.
Light Show features works by 22 artists including David Batchelor, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Olafur Eliasson, Dan Flavin, Ceal Floyer, Jenny Holzer, Anthony McCall, François Morellet, Iván Navarro, Katie Paterson, Conrad Shawcross, James Turrell, Leo Villareal and Doug Wheeler. The exhibition is curated by Dr Cliff Lauson, Hayward Gallery Curator.
