A large warehouse in East London is to be filled with a huge light and sound exhibition next month.

Ranging from live-action laser experiments to cavernous light and soundscapes, the installations are described as “compelling, thought-provoking and big enough to get lost in”.

The exhibition will feature work by contemporary artists including 404.zero, James Clar, Robert Henke, Kimchi and Chips with Rosa Menkman, Matthew Schreiber, S E T U P and UCLA Arts Conditional Studio.

The exhibition is taking place inside The Beams, a 10,000 square metre former warehouse just to the south of London City Airport.

They recommend up to an hour and a half to move through the installations.

The full details are not being provided yet, but the preview images do look impressive, and the exhibition runs from 17th March to 4th June 2023.

  • Adult: £25
  • Adult (weekdays before 5pm): £20
  • Concessions: £17
  • Child: (4-16, only bookable with an adult ticket) £10

Tickets to Thin Air are available from here.

The venue is on North Woolwich Road, a short walk from Pontoon Dock station on the DLR. I’ve been contacted by the event PR to note that people will be asked to arrive via London City Airport DLR station, but do note that the route then involves walking over a narrow footbridge. If that’s an issue, I’d stick to Pontoon Dock as that’s a level pavement all the way.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
