Light up the Museum

From Tuesday 5 November 2021 | Free entry

Kingsland Road Gardens  

Lighting up the Museum this winter will be a major light installation by multi award winning lighting designer Jessica Hung Han Yun.

Jessica's artwork is inspired by East Asian night markets that light up the sky, and sell delicious foods including the famous winter melon soup. The winter melon is a commonly grown vegetable, during winter, for many East and South East Asian households. The process of growing and harvesting the winter melon is a complex one but is a favourite due to its long-lasting properties. The result of their hard work and patience is a giant marrow like vegetable which is often cooked as a delicious soup during the cold winter months. 

You can visit the installation any time during Museum opening hours, however we recommend visiting near 4pm and viewing it from our Kingsland Road gardens to get the best experience.

Join us for our Switch On event on 5 November and help us light up the Museum.
