Haroon Mirza at The Hepworth Wakefield
The success of illuminating exhibitions recently – in particular the awe-inspiring Light Show in London earlier this year (we wrote about it alot, see here, here and here) – has got our rods and cones popping. But what about getting our feet tapping too? Head up north in the United Kingdom to the beautiful setting of The Hepworth Wakefield before 29 September and you can have all your senses on high-alert.
Sound is as much a part of the British artist's work as objects and light and, in 2010, Mirza won the Northern Art Prize as well as the Silver Lion Award at the Venice Biennale for such projects. This new body of previously unseen work includes an audio composition and physical light installation, and promises for some unusual sights and sounds in the art gallery.
The exhibition is ongoing until 29 September 2013.
