We have identified several significant sites within the festival which we would like to invite artists to engage with. These sites are pivotal elements of the LUMA experience and this represents a unique opportunity to collaborate and bring diversity to this rapidly expanding event.
LUMA will welcome expressions of interest from artists offering bespoke, site-specific creations or installations which have been exhibited previously at other light festivals. All proposals will be considered; including projection mapping, mixed media sculpture, interactive lighting elements and performance pieces, as long as the artist believes they will enhance, and add to, the LUMA experience.
The three areas we are keen to see concepts for, are Earnslaw Park, the Queenstown Gardens Rotunda and Queenstown Gardens Glasshouse. Please refer to the event page to view previous installations in the above locations.
Artist fee for yourself and collaborators, technicians or contractors.
Materials and tools to create the work either rental or purchase pricing. For large scale projection mapping works list your projection needs and costs, this may be sourced through our partners.
