Panel Discussion: Light Entertainment

Header image for Title

This event has finished Took place on: Monday, 4th Dec 2023

 £10



As part of the programme complementing our current exhibition, Georgian Illuminations, join them for a discussion of light in public entertainments in the Georgian era and today, with co-curator Dr Melanie Doderer-Winkler, conservator Geoffrey Major and installation artist Nayan Kulkarni.

Melanie Doderer-Winkler will outline celebrated light shows of the period and the impressive and the elaborate temporary architectural structures created for them, often designed by leading architects and artists including Soane. Conservator Geoffrey Major will describe the process of preparing the newly discovered vast linen transparencies, which were back lit in Georgian windows as patriotic decoration during the Napoleonic Wars, and which are displayed for the first time in the Foyle Space. Installation artist Nayan Kulkarni will discuss his commissioned light work that illuminates the Museum’s façade for the duration of the exhibition, a constantly changing display of abstract geometries inspired by Soane’s own use of light. The discussion will be moderated by Dr Louise Stewart, Head of Exhibitions and co-curator of the exhibition.
