Once a symbol of capitalism, with cityscapes of the 1930s adorned with neon advertising, during the 1960s the lighting style became synonymous with the seediness of Soho's sex shop, now, the Grundy Gallery has transformed eight room of their Edwardian building to explore the history of neon lighting in art.
