The Hayward Gallery presents Light Show open 30 January – 28 April 2013, brings together sculptures and artworks that use light in different ways. The exhibition showcases artworks created since the 1960s. Light is used to sculpt and shape space, creating evocative environments and sensory works that play tricks with the viewer’s perception.

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 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.

Alongside the exhibition at Hayward Gallery there are also a number of associated events. www.haywardlightshow.co.uk/exhibition
