Let There Be Light

The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia will present Light Show, a major survey exhibition exploring the phenomenal aspects of light and its versatility as a sculptural medium until July 5. With almost 20 installations and sculptures by international artists from the 1960s to the present, Light Show brings to Sydney some of the most visually stimulating artworks seen in recent years, with installations recreated specially for the exhibition.  

Exhibition highlights include the pioneering minimalist sculptures of America’s 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, and Anthony McCall, among others.

Presented in conjunction with Vivid Sydney and the UN/Unesco 2015 International Year of Light, an array of public programs is scheduled throughout winter to further enhance the Light Show experience. These include LIGHT LAB, a creative family space offering a range of fun, interactive activities with light and colour, and late-night openings until 9pm every night during Vivid Sydney (May 22 -  June 8).

Sydney’s super-chic QT Hotel has a special Light it Up package starting from AU$370 per night, including  overnight accommodation in a QT King Deluxe room, breakfast in Gowings Bar & Grill; and two tickets to the MCA Light Show. The package is valid for stays between April 16 and July 5.
