19-22 December 2014 “Lumen” London


225101-11058451-Lumen_Logo_300dpiI’m looking forward to going to this- An art exhibition exploring astronomy-related themes.

From the Lumen Exhibition Website:

“Lumen are an art collective based in London. We explore themes of astronomy and light, and will be exhibiting works in selected churches around the UK. This show to marks the beginning of a collaboration with the Churches Conservation Trust &Arts&Heritage in a unique art project to inspire a dialogue around how humanity understands our existence.

Lumen unites churches across the country in a single installation through matching the location of the churches selected to take part with a constellation – the arrangement of the buildings on the ground matching the pattern of the stars in the sky. This resulting gestalt could possibly be the biggest single art installation ever in Britain, exhibiting paintings, photography, projections, sculpture and site-specific work all exploring the theme of Space, Science and Art.
