St Mary Le Strand: Rebecca Smith Installation



GLOW: ILLUMINATING INNOVATION is a multi-sited London exhibition showcasing groundbreaking artworks by leading women artists working with cutting-edge technologies. Brand-new pieces have been curated alongside historical works spanning five decades revealing the previously hidden innovation by women in technology.
