Robert Montgomery Lights of Soho
Artwork by Robert Montgomery. All Rise Seattle. 2015

Are you a young light artist looking to be exhibited?

A London-based gallery is offering the chance for artists who use light as a medium to have their work included in a show curated by Robert Montgomery

Whether it’s Chris Burden’s rows of vintage LA streetlamps at LACMA or Jim Campbell’s 2010 huge ghostly LED installation in Madison Square Park, light art can be otherworldly, gaudy or unflinching in its message. And when it comes to infamous poet-come-light artist, Robert Montgomery, the message is quite literally spelt out.

Now, young artists have the chance to be hand-picked by Montgomery himself.

Lights of Soho in London has invited young artists who use light as a medium to enter a competition to exhibit alongside major names in a show guest curated by Robert Montgomery. The curator of the art gallery and member’s club, Hamish Jenkinson, said,: "With this show, I’m hoping that we can reach artists who are well into their craft or just discovering it. I’d like to show young artists that art is a democratic experience and that they too can be featured in a London gallery."

There’s not long to enter – it closes this coming Monday, 14 September – and artists will be notified by 19 September. The exhibition, Signs that Say What You Want Them to Say... will run from 8 October to 21 November.

To submit art, send submissions to with information about yourself or your practice (150 words max), along with three high quality images of your work, or click here for more information on entering
