New special exhibition 'Lichtblicke I' at the BMW Museum

From April 25 to August 26, 2012, the BMW Museum in association with Galerie Hausler Contemporary has presenting around ten illuminated artworks by internationally renowned light artist Keith Sonnier. The US American draws on the aesthetics of advertising by
taking fluorescent lighting technology familiar from the world of neon adverts to form abstract light creations. The sculptures that make up 'Lichtblicke I' bring light and metal, art and experiment, neon tubes and cars face to face.

Exhibition opening - night of light at the BMW Museum
The 'Lichtblicke I' exhibition opened at the BMW Museum with a special night of light. From 10.00 PM to mid-night, visitors can not only bask in the glow of Keith Sonnier’s installations but also enjoy the hourly fashion shows staged by the Deutsche Meisterschule fur Mode fashion academy on the theme of 'Light and Shade'.

Dr. Ralf Rodepeter, Director of the BMW Museum and Communication Visitor Experience Munich, has this to say about the current exhibition, “With their warmth and radiance, the light creations by Keith Sonnier harmoniously blend in with the architecture of the BMW Museum. We are delighted at this opportunity to continue the dialogue between light installations and the automobile. Since 2008, the BMW Museum has featured floor-to-ceiling light facades which provide opaque glass surfaces that open up possibilities for digital projections.”
'Lichtblicke I' is the inaugural event that kicks off this year’s cultural focus on 'light' at the BMW Museum. Light-lovers can already look forward to the second instalment of the exhibition series – 'Lichtblicke II' – in October 2012.
