International light masters in new blockbuster exhibition

Blockbuster names Turrell, Kusama, and Eliasson for Tate’s global tour landing at ACMI for light infused exhibition.

The captivating light tubes of James Turrell, the sun-bathed lilies of Claude Monet, the reflective installations of Yayoi Kusama – these are artworks that we can hardly take our eyes off, and neither can our Australian institutions.

Following the success of James Turrell: A Retrospective at the National Gallery of Australia (NGA) in 2014 and Switched on: Light Show at Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) in 2015, some of the world’s great masters of light art – and light inspired artworks – will finally illuminate Melbourne, as ACMI presents its own blockbuster version, Light: Works from Tate’s Collection from 15 June – 13 November 2022.
