An exhibition of light art in windows and public space
May 14-16, 2021, worldwide
LIGHT WINDOWS began in 2020, as the pandemic isolated us from each other. Unable to produce gallery exhibitions we invited artist to create light art in their windows and public space. These gestures of creativity inspired neighbors and forged connections across a separated world.
One year on the need for connecting across boarders and through barriers remains critical. Over one weekend artists from around the world are lighting up their windows and public space. The works range from major public art commissions, to urban screen and experiments with light in windows.
