Discover creative neon light art in Brewer Street, and revisit an integral part of Soho’s history.
‘City Lights’ is the newest exhibition in a series of exciting and educational events happening at the Lights of Soho gallery at 35 Brewer Street from 28 May – 5 July. After the success of ‘God’s Own Junkyard’ the late Chris Bracey’s gallery in Lights of Soho gallery late last year, ‘City Lights’ will showcase an extensive mix of light artists. The first space ever to feature both Tracey Emin’s and Chris Bracey’s work at the same time, it will be an iconic moment with light art pioneers placed side-by-side.
Tracey Emin, states, “Lights of Soho is doing something exceptional. People take neon for granted bit it’s a dying craft. There are many new ways of lighting up the town but it’s nice to be able to see and concentrate on the old traditional methods.”
In addition to the gallery space, Lights of Soho will act as a member’s lounge for Soho’s creative community. The venue hosts a secret basement that previously housed a brothel, and will now feature private tables that offer the same sense of mystery found in Soho’s past, where you can work by day and relax, dine and wine yourself by night with Michelin-starred chef Mark Hix’s menu.
Artists exhibiting in ‘City Lights’ include: Tracey Emin, Gavin Turk, Chris Levine, Chris Bracey, Christian Furr, Rob & Nick Carter plus many more.
Lights of Soho joins an exciting host of creative houses to come to Brewer Street with London Fashion Week also residing in the Brewer Street Car Park this September.
