NORRKÖPING LIGHT FESTIVAL

About the case

Located two hours south from Stockholm is the beautiful industrial city of Nörrkoping. A city situated by the mouth of the river Motala Ström. Every winter, just before Christmas, the city is enlightened by light art installations that are located along this river in a festival called Nörkopping Light Festival. Light Art Collection has curated Norrköping Light Festival for three years in a row: 2015-2016, 2016-2017 and 2017-2018. We’ve created a walking route through the city center and selected the artworks that reflect the city’s history and environment. Light Art Collection will curate the festival of 2018-2019 as well.

Participating artists:

Stephen Newby, Ralf Westerhof, Thomas Ribás, Geraud Periole, Jetske Visser & Michiel Martens, VENIVIDIMULTIPLEX, Viktor Vicsek, Rob van Houten, Katja Galyuk, Tropism art collective & Angus Muir.

TORONTO LIGHT FESTIVAL

About the case

Every year in December the Distillery Historic District organises a Christmas Market, bringing along with it a great cheer to the city of Toronto. However, in the month of January the neighbourhood always remained very quiet. Light Art Collection started a collaboration with Distillery District and started organizing the Toronto Light Festival. During the cold, dark days of January, city residents are drawn out of their traditional indoor habitats to experience Toronto in a way they never have before. The Toronto Light Festival exhibits the creativity of local and international artists and is a winter experience designed to entertain and inspire.

Participating artists:
VENIVIDIMULTIPLEX, Angelo Bonello, alaa minawi, LAVA/Barrisol, Vikas Patil & Santosh Gujar, Lightform, Studio Toer, OGE Group & Tom Dekyvere.
