Llum BCN Poblenou


In its seventh edition, the Barcelona light festival offered from 16 to 18 February almost fifty spectacles and installations designed by prestigious national and international artists, not forgetting one of the home-grown seals that distinguish it from other urban light festivals: a commitment to experimentation and innovation displayed by the pupils of the city’s art, design, lighting and architecture schools, who for this edition had the challenge of transforming spaces of widely varying characteristics.

For the first time, the event left behind its usual location in the Ciutat Vella district to illuminate the Poblenou, a neighbourhood with an industrial heritage that is immersed in a transformation process to become a new district for technology, innovation and creation.

The Quebec video artist and creator Monique Savoie, the founder of the prestigious Société des Arts Technologiques (SAT) of Montreal, was the edition’s guest artist. Savoie presented a selection of immersive 360-degree screenings at the Domo, a family space where children could enjoy artistic installations made from light during the daytime.

Simon, the manufacturer of electric and electronic material and one of the companies that sponsored the festival, loaned its Simon 100 Space for the private prize-giving ceremony of the Llum Bcn Awards 2018 presented by Barcelona’s Culture Institute to the best light installation created by the city’s art, design, lighting and architecture schools.
