Talk about a BLOCKbuster exhibition.
Art of the Brick The Immersive Experience — an exhibition featuring over 90 LEGO sculptures by artist Nathan Sawaya — comes to Shoreditch this March.
Among the frankly incredible sculptures made from the colourful plastic bricks are interpretations of famous art masterpieces, such as Michelangelo's David, and The Scream by Edvard Munch. There will also be a giant T-rex skull, and Perniciem — with its LEGO likenesses of endangered animals such as tigers.
All in all, the show — which runs from 6 March-12 May 2024 uses over a million LEGO bricks.
What's 'immersive' about Art of the Brick? We're told there's '3D video mapping' and 'a soaring musical score', although surely the biggest draw will be the area where visitors can build their own LEGO creations. It's the simple pleasures in life.
Though it's being billed as 'all new', some of the pieces might look familiar to you, including a giant version of 'Yellow' — the sculpture of a figure ripping their chest asunder, the original of which starred in London's first Art of the Brick show back in 2014.
