Grundy Light Exhibition 2015

Sensory Systems


Angela Bulloch, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Ann Veronica Janssens, Anthony McCall and Conrad Shawcross. 

Starting this year the Grundy Art Gallery begins a major new programme of exhibitions and commissions incorporating the broad theme of light, which will occur annually to coincide with Blackpool’s Illuminations, which takes place in the town every autumn.

For 2015, the gallery presents ‘Sensory Systems’, a substantial new exhibition bringing together works by internationally acclaimed artists interested in the technology and science of light and how this can be deployed and shaped to affect our perceptual experience of space. 

Whether through sculpture, projection or immersive architecture each artwork in ‘Sensory Systems’ invites a dialogue or interaction with the viewer, utilising colour, pattern, movement and other techniques to evoke a variety of spatial and sensory experiences.


Lightpool Opening times:

Tuesday - Thursday: 10am-5pm

Friday - Saturday: 10am-7pm

Sunday: 12-4pm 

Monday: Closed


Sensory Systems is part of LightPool @ Blackpool Illuminations . We are grateful for the support of Blackpool Council, Arts Council England, Visit Blackpool, LeftCoast and the Coastal Communities Fund for enabling this to happen.
