Downtown Kamloops > After Dark

A FREE week-long video art exhibition, Luminocity showcases video projects by artists from across the country in unexpected public spaces throughout the downtown core of Kamloops and is presented every two years. As an off-site Kamloops Art Gallery initiative, Luminocity embraces new creative concepts and modes of expression in the media arts field and brings recent video projects previously shown primarily in gallery settings to the outdoors.

Inspired by popular public art events such as Nuit Blanche that take over major cities like Toronto and Montréal, Luminocity transforms Kamloops’ urban environment with projections on the façades of buildings and from windows, along with site-specific installations at Riverside Park and performances and evening events in the Rotary Bandshell at Riverside Park.

This year Luminocity lights up these sites with a selection of diverse multi-media work by artists based across the country and from here at home. Highlighting themes materializing in current video practices, many projects feature female protagonists, explore Asian folklore and examine traditional Indigenous practices and our relationship with them today. A number of the videos probe fantastical stories of other worlds, at times ghostly and dark.

Let this map be your guide to nine evenings of urban transformation and insightful encounters.

  1. I just learned about luminocity today and I am so excited to take the tour and look around! What a great idea! I am actually sorry I missed some of it… Hopefully this becomes at least an annual event.

    • Luminocity continues all week! Be sure to check out all the sites after dark. The Lumin-Haus videos change nightly and Pink Noise in the Bandshell will be humming again on Friday and Saturday. There is also a walking tour on Thursday at 6pm. Meet at the KAG.

  2. Just heard via text about your Luminocoty Project. Congratulations KAG! Great concept and implementation. I simply love the idea and what a great way to attract people to the area while introducing a different visual art concept.
