Llum BCN 2020: an opportunity to enjoy art and make life on the street

From February 14 to 16, the Llum BCN festival will transform, for the third consecutive year, the Poblenou neighborhood into an outdoor research and experimentation laboratory through light, digital technology and moving image. It is an opportunity to challenge our senses in a high intensity sensory experience and a collective experiment that wants to invite citizens to explore new forms of participation and coexistence in the urban landscape.

The most outstanding novelty is the Agora, a space dedicated to the creative community to connect, grow and be inspired, which will feature a schedule of talks and round tables around the light as a means of expression. In parallel, the Hack the Light Up will invite programmers, artists and creators to work together to build creative lighting projects.

This year, 23 professional artists from all over the world will participate, such as Kurt Hentschläger and the United Visual Artists studio, and 17 schools of art, design, lighting and architecture of the city. To these names will be added another year the Off Llum, the alternative circuit of the festival organized by Poblenou Urban District around 15 small and medium format light installations located both in the streets and in different creation spaces and innovation.

The Disseny Hub Barcelona will repeat as the information point of the festival, and will be one of the main equipments in which different light shows will take place. Julio Le Parc, one of the most important names in the international scene and pioneer in the creation of kinetic and light art, will explode his Metamorphosis on the main facade of the building, in the Josep Antoni Coderch square. Inside, we will be able to see The day we left fields of Tundra, a floating meadow that hangs upside down from the roof; and Fiat Lux, an immersive installation by Estudi Antoni Arola that recreates a spiritual space from the architecture of light. Finally, Luke Jarram will bring us the Moon in the Museum of the Moon, in the pond of the Disseny Hub.

The lighting designer Maria Güell has curated this 9th edition, together with José Luis de Vicente, cultural researcher and curator of Sónar + D; and Oriol Pastor, founder of the Mira Festival.

The Llum BCN will release an app in which you can consult the list of artistic installations, and that will allow the user to see its position on the map based on geolocation. If you want to know more about this year's programming, you will find all the information here.
