To accompany the Light Show exhibition is this large-format, fully-illustrated hardcover catalogue. Featuring essays by art historian Anne Wagner, science writer Philip Ball, and curator Cliff Lauson, the catalogue traces the rich history of artificial light as a sculptural medium from the 1960s to the present day. The catalogue features works by artists such as Dan Flavin, James Turrell, Olafur Eliasson, David Batchelor, Conrad Shawcros, Fischli and Weiss, Nancy Holt, Jenny Holzer and Philippe Parreno.
Light Show is an essential addition to the literature of sculpture and installation and a timely and unique contribution in the investigation of light in contemporary art.
