Jo Bell, ILP Events & Marketing Co-ordinator

A lucky group of ILP volunteers was given the chance this month to experience a solo exhibition of works by Leo Villareal, the American artist behind the capital’s mammoth ‘Illuminated River’ art project.

Members described the exhibition as ‘mesmerising’, ‘breath-taking’, ‘you could get lost in the twirls and motions of the lights’.

The ILP members were given the opportunity to visit the Pace Gallery in Mayfair, London and experience its first solo exhibition of works by Villareal.

The trip was a ‘thank you’ by the ILP to members who had volunteered their time and expertise this year, including some of those who have been working with Villareal on ‘Illuminated River’, the ambitious project with Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands and The Illuminated River Foundation to create the world’s largest free public art project by illuminating up to 15 London bridges.

More information and images will feature in our February Lighting Journal.
