New year, new pretty installations and art pieces for your IG feed and TikTok! Starting the year off strong as one of the first big events of the year, the annual Light to Night arts festival is back for its 2023 instalment — and this time, they’re coming back brighter and better.
The lauded festival will take place from 6 January to 26 January 2023 in the Civic District — and will feature a myriad of exciting activities for you to partake in from spectacular light and multimedia installations to engaging shows. There’s also a festival village which will include over 60 booths offering tantalising bites, arts, crafts and unique trinkets for sale, as well as stellar performances. There wouldn’t be a dull moment here to say the least!
The theme of this year’s festival is Here and Now — in which both local and international artists will inspire the audience with their pieces on what it means to embrace living in the present.
Some highlights that you can’t miss include Ephemeral — a magical art installation located at the Padang featuring larger than life bubble structures. Coupled with the gorgeous light effects and Singapore’s cityscape, these gleaming bubbles will be the perfect way to kick off your IG and TikTok feed for the new year!
Another exhibition that’s bound to catch your eye is Botanica — a hyperrealistic light projection of some of the most ethereal flowers (that are often used in Southeast Asian arts) located within the dome of the Rotunda Library and Archives in the National Gallery. As the flowers bloom above you, you’ll feel like you’ve been whisked away to a tranquil world of beauty and enchantment.
For those who have been stressed out lately, check out PULSE — a calming light projection exhibit that’s both mesmerising and healing at the same time taking place at Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall. This exhibit will be accompanied by a special soundtrack that’s pitched at 432Hz — a frequency that’s supposed to be aligned with the universe. Talk about zen!
When you’re done with the ethereal exhibits or whenever you need a break, there’s also the Art x Social festival market — where you’ll find loads of interesting things for sale as well as various crafting workshops and F&B booths!
