AORA is excited to announce LUMA, a monumental collaborative exhibition in the heart of London, bringing together art, design, architecture and music around AORA’s core tenets of calm and wellbeing. An active exhibition, it is curated by Jenn Ellis and brings together the works of 20 international artists and designers in collaboration with seven leading global galleries and private supporters. Across sculpture, painting and installation, LUMA, sheds light on the ebb and flow of structural pause and flux and is accompanied by a public programme comprising performances and talks. The moment is presented in partnership with Kinrise set across 8,000 sq ft of their Silbury + East site, two historic warehouses o Old Street, soon to be renovated into a contemporary workspace later on this year. In dialogue with Silbury + East’s state between construction and development, LUMA ultimately addresses transition, unpacking its environmental, physical and emotional associations.
