Light Show

Wednesday 30 January 2013 - Monday 6 May 2013

All advance tickets are now sold out for the rest of the exhibition.

Day tickets for the morning time slots are released at 10am daily. These tickets cannot be booked in advance and are available on a first come, first served basis from the Hayward Gallery Ticket Office. Each person can buy up to four day tickets.

Light Show 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, interactive pieces to intangible sculptures that you can move around and even through, visitors experience light in all of its spatial and sensory forms.

Alongside the exhibition at Hayward Gallery there are also a number of associated events.
