End Date 24 January 2016
Venue Centraal Museum
Location Utrecht, The Netherlands
Curator Eelco van der Lingen

There is that moment when the eyes let in the first daylight, the afterimages you see when you look into the light and discovering a rainbow in the sky. Examples of moments where light colors our lives. Even when the sun sets, light plays a major role in our lives. Just think of your nightlight or the neon lighting of shops.

In Lekker Licht you experience what light does in a stimulating way through visual art, fashion design and music videos. Various artists show how they interpret light in their own way. The exhibition examines the essential social, religious and technological significance of light.
