Light Show


exhibition Details

Continuing from its sell-out season at the Hayward Gallery, London, in 2013, the spectacular Light Show comes to Auckland Art Gallery this spring.

Spilling out across two floors of the Gallery, the exhibition is the first major presentation of international light-based art to be seen in New Zealand and offers an immersive and multi-sensory experience.

Light Show brings together some of the most visually stimulating artworks created using different forms of light in recent years, with rare works not seen for decades and some re-created specially for the exhibition.

From atmospheric installations to intangible sculptures that you can move around and even through, experience light in all of its spatial and sensory forms. Individual artworks explore colour, duration, intensity and projection of light, as well as perceptual phenomena.

Prepare to be dazzled by some of the world's most brilliant artworks from the likes of David Batchelor, Jim Campell, Olafur Eliasson, Dan Flavin, Jenny Holzer, Ann Veronica Janssens, Anthony McCall, Katie Paterson, James Turrell, Leo Villareal and New Zealand's Bill Culbert.

Exhibition organised by the Hayward Gallery, London in association with Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki.
