Hayward Gallery Light Show Review

Audience perceptions were challenged by the complexity of experiences on offer. Toying with all senses the exhibition evoked mixed reactions. Enthralled by the intuitive nature of one child’s comments on the work of Jim Campbell; in which it was noted that light replicated the moving image, I further consolidated my opinion of the value of listening to pupil voice when exposed to art in a gallery context. Galleries can allow children to access a platform of expression, which is equal to that of any other individual, enabling them to question and extend their knowledge and understanding of the world.

This was a truly breathtaking exhibition uniting exploration into capitalism, consumerism and the relationship between human interaction and light in our unquantifiable world!
