The first exhibition of its kind in the UK, bringing together the most visually stimulating artworks created in recent years with rare works not seen for decades and re-created specially for the Hayward Gallery.
Exploring the experiential and phenomenal nature of light, Light Show presents sculptures and installations, which use light as a medium.
The exhibition showcases artworks since the 1960s in which light itself is used as a material to sculpt and shape space, creating evocative environments and sensory works that operate at the edges of the viewer's perception.
From being immersed in atmospheric installations to moving around, and even through, intangible sculptures, visitors will experience light in all of its spatial and sensory forms.
Artworks will utilise a variety of lighting technologies including specialist bulbs, fluorescent tubes, neon, LEDs, and computer-controlled lighting.
Light Show features works by more than 20 artists including: David Batchelor, Carlos Cruz-Diez,
Olafur Eliasson, Dan Flavin, Ceal Floyer, Jenny Holzer, Ann Veronica Janssens, Anthony McCall, François Morellet, Ivan Navarro, Katie Paterson and Conrad Shawcross.
