Artistic lighting like you’ve never seen before.
On December 3, Lumiere will be back to light up Vancouver’s West End with an evening of artistic expression, community engagement, and of course, lights.
The annual event will see Vancouver’s Morton Park and Jim Deva Plaza lit up with a series of art installations and performances. Luna the Lumiere Whale, an installation in Morton Park from last year’s event, will return for another year, and three new installations will be set up at the Jim Deva Plaza.
This year’s artists are:
- Erdem Taşdelen, a Toronto-based artist whose work comes through drawing, installation, sculpture, and artist books. His projects often feature a critical sense of humour and reflective self-expression
- Hfour, a studio that works to intersect art, technology, and experiences. Ben Cooper and Stuart Ward are the lead creatives at the studio, and bring a unique aesthetic to the studio’s projects
- Tangible Interaction, a local company that focuses on creating participatory installations featuring the senses. Its work is meant to generate conversation and tap into basic human instincts
- MK Illumination, an Austrian company that’s worked in Canada since 2012. The company manufactures its own installations, rating innovation and sustainability as top priorities
Lumiere will also feature local DJ Grayson Repp at Jim Deva Plaza, and fire performance troop Radiant Heat at Morton Park.
The light installations from the event will remain in Vancouver throughout the winter months, giving some added festivity to our city.
When: December 3, 4:30 to 10:30 pm
Where: Morton Park, 1800 Morton Ave and Jim Deva Plaza, 1200 Bute Street
