Save Event: Light & Shade

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Light & Shade is an exhibition of contemporary art featuring 12 artists whose work explores the transformative possibilities of light and the ways in which it can be used to convey or elicit form and feeling.


Light’s intrinsic relationship with the natural world is addressed by each of the artists, whether directly, through figurative representation, or indirectly, with abstract works. While some explore the sublime and spectacular nature of the elements or strange and unsettling effects of light on atmosphere, other works play with light and shade to articulate ever-changing form and texture or the consumption of light by darkness.

Featuring: Louise Beer, Harriet Carter, Mi-Young Choi, Emma Coop, Helen Jones, Marguerite Knight, Hattie Moore, Émilie-Christine P. Newman, Ioanna Sakellarki, Paul Harvey Scull, Renata Sinclair, and Ruth Wallace.

Light & Shade is curated by Sightlines Projects, a Bristol-based curatorial partnership.
