Time Out Says

Everyone’s favourite riverside culture hotspot Southbank Centre will once again be aglow with festive illuminations. Winter Light is a free, open-air exhibition featuring no fewer than ten lightworks (which is what we’re calling these now) from properly famous and talented artists from around the world. All of them make mind-bending use of light, colour and even boundary-pushing film to deal with issues and topics surrounding nature, technology, urban life and spirituality.

Works featured include: Dichroic Sphere (a light sculpture powered by a single energy-efficient bulb); Car Show (a beautifully glowing ‘graveyard of cars’); Loomin (a lovely neon canopy above the trees of The Queen’s Walk) and Noste (projected layers, pulsating colour onto the Centre’s concrete columns). And that’s just four of them!

Why not combine your visit with a trip to Southbank Centre’s Winter Market?
