A Certain Kind of Light: Light in Art Over Six Decades is a major exhibition exploring how artists have responded to light, its transience and effect. Encompassing paintings, sculpture, photography, and installation, it features artworks created from the 1960s to the present day by fifteen leading artists.

The exhibition features many works from the Arts Council Collection, including Colour Construction by Peter Lanyon who was a leading figure at Newlyn Art Gallery in the 1950s and 60s, as well as camera-less photographs by Garry Fabian Miller who had a solo show there in 2008.

As part of the exhibition, and to mark the tenth anniversary of the opening of The Exchange, Cornwall-based artist Peter Freeman has updated Lightwave, the dramatic artwork illuminating the glass façade of the building he first created when the gallery opened in 2007.

Artists in the exhibition: Roger Ackling, David Batchelor, Angela Bulloch, Garry Fabian Miller, Ceal Floyer, Peter Freeman, Raphael Hefti, Anish Kapoor, Peter Lanyon, Rut Blees Luxemburg, Julian Opie, John Riddy, Mark Titchner, Paul Winstanley, Toby Ziegler.
