David Hockney: Ways of Working

25 January - 19 April

Spanning six decades of creative output, this exhibition takes an in-depth look at David Hockney’s ingenious exploration of a diverse range of media, from painting techniques, draughtsmanship and printmaking skills, to photography, designs for the stage and the embrace of digital technologies such as the iPad, Photoshop and inkjet processes.


Raphael: Prince Albert’s Passion

6 May - 6 September

2020 marks the 500th anniversary of the death of Raphael and to commemorate this significant event, exhibitions are being staged around the world to celebrate Raphael’s achievement as one of the greatest artists of the Italian Renaissance.

The upcoming exhibition relays the fascinating story of Prince Albert’s passion for Raphael and his creation of the Raphael Collection at Windsor Castle. It reveals how Raphael caught the imagination of the Prince Consort, who embarked on a pioneering research-based project into the work of the Renaissance master, making copies of his work using the newest 19th century technology.


The Ingram Collection: Women at Work

19 September - 6 December

Art made by women has and continues to be under-represented in collections and exhibitions.
Championing the work of female artists in The Ingram Collection, this exhibition will place contemporary artists such as Aleah Chapin and Lucy Jones alongside key figures in the history of Modern British Art. These include Barbara Hepworth, renowned sculptor in a male dominated profession, Sylvia Gosse, who was excluded from membership of the Camden Town Group and prohibited from working, as well as Laura Knight, the first woman to be elected by her peers as a full member of the Royal Academy in 1936 – the Royal Academy was formed in 1768.


Bridget Riley

19 December - 16 May, 2021

Delve into the historical roots of Bridget Riley’s art and her working methods, through a selection of exemplary striped, curved, colour and black-and-white works.
Examples will be drawn from each decade – from the 1960s to the present day – with oils, prints and preparatory colour studies, forming a medium scale retrospective which will explore the artist’s enduring exploration of colour, structure and perception.


The Lightbox is situated in Woking (25 minutes from London Waterloo by train) and is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday 10.30am – 5.00pm, Thursday 10.30am – 8.30pm and Sunday 11.00am – 4.00pm.
