What is the ‘A Great Light’ exhibition?

Clarke’s monumental career and innovative approach to artmaking is celebrated in the exhibition ‘A Great Light’ at Damien Hirst’s Newport Street Gallery in London. Opening on 9 June 2023 and coinciding with Clarke’s 70th birthday, ‘A Great Light’ tracks his unmatched contribution to the continuous development of the stained glass medium. All eight editions of ‘Collages’ and the original artworks will be on view in ’A Great Light’.

Featuring a range of works from Clarke’s career, including his leadworks and freestanding stained glass panels, and presenting new, monumental works in stained glass and collage, the exhibition presents the various ways Clarke creatively interrogates the materials, effects and construction of stained glass across scale and medium.

A selection of the ‘Collages’ prints will also be on display at Fondation Beyeler in Riehen, Switzerland and Serpentine South in London.
