Night Mural 2013: Urban Renewal in Light

illuminart transformed a Port Adelaide dockside building with ephemeral projected murals commissioned from ten Port Adelaide artists, showcasing the potential of rapid mural prototyping and the potential for future urban transformations.

The show was presented as a “live studio event” to an audience of 350 on 17th August during SALA festival 2013.

Night Mural Picnic is part of illuminart’s New Light Industrial project, supported by Arts SA, Port Adelaide Enfield Council, CAN SA and sponsored by Mosaic AV and illuminart.

Night Mural 2014 is a fresh new set of mural artworks to be created by young people of Port Adelaide Enfield. Find out more here!

One of the best things in 2013 for me was having my artwork projected onto buildings by the Illuminart team. Thanks!

Hi illuminart,
Just wanted to say my family and I came along last night and despite the weather thoroughly enjoyed the murals.  The illumination was so clever the way they unfolded, we loved them all but for most of us the “tree of life” was the absolute highlight.  The way the artist used the medium to get glimpses of patterns through cracks and the falling leaves was so beautiful.  Whilst more permanent murals would be great there was also something really lovely about how the artists cleverly used the temporary medium.  We also thought the choice of music was fab, and so suited all the works.
Well done to everyone involved.
