Following a sell-out season at the Hayward Gallery in London, the spectacular Light Show comes to the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney.

Light Show features works from the 1960s to the present day by 17 major international artists. Ranging from atmospheric installations to sculptures that you can move around and even through, Light Show invites you to experience the spatial and sensory effects of light in a myriad of forms.

The earliest works in Light Show were created in the early 1960s at a time when new alliances were being forged within art, science, technology and industry. During this period, artists around the world were investigating light and its power to transform space and to influence perception.

Exhibition highlights include the pioneering minimalist sculptures of American Dan Flavin, composed of off-the-shelf fluorescent tubes, French artist François Morellet’s work in neon and David Batchelor’s use of bright, industrially-produced colour. It also features immersive environmental installations by Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Diez, James Turrell, Anthony McCall, and Ann Veronica Janssens, among others.
