ON: a re-imagining of Blackpool Illuminations


Grundy Art Gallery has commissioned artist Brian Griffiths to respond to the town's famous Illuminations for their 100 years anniversary. Exploring the idea and uses of light, Griffiths has created an exhibition that will be a unique presentation of a selection of actual or fragments of illuminations from the Blackpool Illuminations department and archive. It will showcase the diversity of lights and the breadth of imagination that takes the viewer effortlessly from ancient Greece to science fiction future, from human-sized teddy bears to gigantic Tiffany lamps.
