The immensely popular Light Show at London’s Hayward Gallery is the latest in the Southbank gallery’s great succession of entertainment shows. The exhibition shines bright with series of art that twinkles, glistens, glitters, radiates and glows. For anyone that loves neon lights or even that horrible 90s office strip lighting – this will blow your mind – it is basically LED porn. All of the works use light to shape and sculpt space while creating a discourse about experience and perception.

Everything in it, no matter how advanced, complex, fetching or trite, is theatrical, not least because everything has the instant appeal – or advantage – of luminosity. It’s a pleasure trip for all and a tonic for the gloomy or tired in particular, each work being as brightly beautiful as the next.
