The paper "A critical review of the contemporary Art Exhibition ‘The light Show’ in Hayward Gallery" gives a review of ‘The light Show’, Art Exhibition in Hayward Gallery. The ability of the art to transform space and to influence and alter perceptions through the application of modern materials that had not been polluted by the traditional art, forms the basis of the ‘The light Show’ in Hayward Gallery. Thus, the application of fluorescent tubes and Neon tubes struck the world in the early 1960s as the means through which the materials that had not been used before became the basis of creating an optical environment that has enabled making of the intangible materials into more tangible substance achievable. The combination of Dan Flavin’s ‘electric light art’ that applies the fluorescent tubes, with the François Morellet’s Neon tubes and the Carlos Cruz-Diez concept of Chromosaturation installations, as well as the Bill Culbert time-based installations of light bulbs are aspects of the ‘light Show’ in Hayward Gallery that has made the psychological response to illumination and colour a more conceptual and sensual experience for the art audience. The Contemporary Art Exhibition Art Exhibition, ‘The light Show’ in Hayward Gallery forms atmospheric light installations and intangible art sculptures that the audience can go through. The light installations and the combination of the light bulbs, the Neon tubes and the fluorescent tubes enables the visitors to experience the mystery of light as a tool for art.
