Light Show
Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki
11 October - 08 February 2015
Corner Kitchener and Wellesley Streets Auckland, New Zealand

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

"Light Show" explores the experiential and phenomenal nature of light, bringing together sculptures and installations that use light to create specific conditions. The exhibition showcases artworks since the 1960s in which light itself is used as material to sculpt and shape space, often creating evocative environments and sensory works that operate at the edges of the viewer’s perception. Light has the power to affect our states of mind as well as alter our perceptions, and Light Show will include some of the most visually stimulating artworks created in recent years as well as rare works not seen for decades and re-created specially for the Hayward Gallery.

Artists in the exhibition include: 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.
