New Light Industrial …. Port Adelaide: May-October 2013

Illuminart have made Port Adelaide our home for 2013 and we have a big vision for the area.

We will use the dark quiet streets and vacant spaces to showcase new types of illumination and moving image art, in events for photographers, families, designers and architects, and anyone looking for a new after dark experience.

We’re involving artists from around SA who create moving image and illuminated media, and also training local artists to use light or projection as an innovation within their work.  You can follow the story on the New Light Industrial Blog.

If you are keen to attend an event take a look at the list below, and to get updates please like the NLI facebook page, or go directly to our ticket sales, or drop in to the Projectroom.

Projection onto the Harbours Board Building, Lipson Street, Port AdelaideAll of the above projects are part of NEW LIGHT INDUSTRIAL – a concept we dreamed up back in 2011, as a way to extend illuminart’s relationship with Port Adelaide beyond the Port Festival and be more involved in the Port, support and connect with local artists and cultural projects. It’s dark streets and old buildings are perfect for illumination projects, moving image and projection art! Come and enjoy it with us, before everyone else finds out about it… !
