INSULAE (Of the Island)

The Barbican Centre

We’re pleased to announce our second commission by the Barbican Centre for Performing Arts featuring 2018 Lumen finalist Nye Thompson.

Opening 23 February on Level G, Nye Thompson’s video installation INSULAE (Of the Island) will reflect the impact of island geography on Britain’s national identity in a perpetually looping virtual tour of the waters just off the mainland.

We’re excited to be planning more commissions from Lumen artists in collaboration with our partners – details to be released soon.

Barbican OpenFest: Art 50, a day of free activities showcasing works created as part of Art 50, a collaboration between Sky Arts, the Barbican, Sage Gateshead and the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Arts.
