Lights of Soho: Second Annual Submission to Set Brewer Street Aglow

London’s premier showcase of neon and light art is proud to announce its second annual submission. New and established artists in the form are invited to submit. Their work will be curated by a special guest artist whose name will be revealed in due course. Last year’s submissions were curated by Robert Montgomery, the famous text artist, who works with fire, light and billboards amongst other media, so SEEN expects the standards to be very high. The exhibition will be open to the public from 28th September – 29th October 2016.
