Solid Light Works will be the first major UK exhibition of artist Anthony McCall’s work in over a decade. It will explore all facets of his work and will include the UK premiere of three new ‘solid light’ installations.

The role of artists in influencing interiors will be explored through key loans from both collections and special commissions by contemporary artists.
