Llum BCN Poblenou 2018

  • Things to do

Time Out says

The light festival Llum BCN is back for its seventh year from February 16 to 18 with big new features. In past years Llum BCN has been on in parallel with the Santa Eulàlia festival, lighting up streets, buildings and façades in the Old City, but this year it's got its own spotlight, waiting a weekend and changing neighbourhoods to Poblenou, where, from 7pm you'll find a circuit of art installations where the definitive star is light.

This year the number of shows, transformed spaces and installations are multiplied, and feature internationally renowned artists as well as local emerging talent from universities of design, art and architecture in Barcelona. You'll marvel at innovative, experimental and sensory works that blur the lines between art, science and technology.

Llum BCN 2018's guest artist is Quebecoise video artist and creator Monique Saboya, founder of the Société des Arts Technologiques (SAT) in Montreal, a leading foundation in art and new technologies that presents a selection of top immersive projections in the new Family Space, which will also be open during the day on Saturday and Sunday with different interactive activities in C/Pamplona, 123, at the corner of Tánger. That's also where you'll find the Van-Van Foc food market on Saturday and Sunday from noon.

Information points will be set up at the counter on the lower floor at DHUB Barcelona, in the rest areas on the corner of C/ Sancho de Ávila at Ciudad de Granada, and at Pamplona, 123. Get the detailled programme of installations, shows and transformed spaces on the festival's website.
