A Trick of the Light continues Grundy Art Gallery's commitment to exhibiting and collecting artworks that explore the use of 'light': this exhibition brings together a group of internationally recognised contemporary artists whose work cast shadows, conjure illusions and bring the inanimate to life. Referencing pre-cinematic techniques and Victorian optical entertainments, these artworks use the transformative power of light to alter perception and trick the eye. Artists: Brass Art, Mat Collishaw, Rachel Goodyear, Helen Maurer, Tim Noble & Sue Webster. Artefacts courtesy of The Bill Douglas Cinema Museum, University of Exeter.
