Hayward Gallery's Light Show features a series of compelling and dramatic experiences
A Hayward Gallery employee stands in front of an art installation entitled 'Cylinder II' by artist Leo Villareal as she poses for the photographers at the gallery in London, Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2013. The exhibition 'Light Show' featuring 25 illuminated installations and sculptures by artists from the 1960's to the present, will run from Jan. 30, 2013 to April 28, 2013.
LONDON.- Light Show (30 January – 28 April 2013) is the first survey of light based art in the UK and brings together the most visually stimulating artworks created in recent years, with rare works not seen for decades and re-created especially for Hayward Gallery.

Featuring a series of compelling and dramatic experiences, Light Show engages the viewer in mesmerising illuminated environments over the two extensive floors of the Hayward Gallery. Twenty-five sensory installations and sculptures by major international artists from the 1960s to the present explore the medium of light, responding to the surrounding architecture and often operating at the edges of the spectator’s perception.

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 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 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, Jim Campbell, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Bill Culbert, 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, Leo Villareal, Doug Wheeler and Cerith Wyn Evans. The exhibition is curated by Dr Cliff Lauson, Hayward Gallery Curator.
