SHARJAH.- Sharjah Art Foundation presents Light Show, a major exhibition of light-based works, organised by Hayward Gallery, London, in association with Sharjah Art Foundation. Light Show includes over 20 large-scale installations and sculptures by artists David Batchelor, Jim Campell, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Bill Culbert, Olafur Eliasson, Dan Flavin, Ceal Floyer, Nancy Holt, Jenny Holzer, Ann Veronica Janssens, Brigitte Kowanz, Anthony McCall, François Morellet, Iván Navarro, Katie Paterson, Conrad Shawcross, James Turrell, Leo Villareal and Cerith Wyn Evans.

Curated by Dr Cliff Lauson, Curator, Hayward Gallery in association with Hoor Al Qasimi, Sharjah Art Foundation, this expansive exhibition is on view at SAF Art Spaces from 19 September through 5 December.

Light Show explores the experiential and phenomenal aspects of light, 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. One of Hayward Gallery's most popular exhibitions, Light Show was visited by more than 190,000 people in 2013 before travelling to Auckland Art Gallery, New Zealand and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, Australia.

Sharjah Art Foundation Director Sheikha Hoor Al Qasimi stated: “It has been a great privilege to collaborate with the Hayward Gallery, London, on the Sharjah presentation of this major exhibition. Light Show has given us the opportunity to work with this group of significant artists and for our audiences to interact with and experience their works firsthand”.

As part of SAF public and education programme, a range of workshops for children and adults, film screenings and other activities around Light Show will be scheduled alongside the exhibition.
