Downtown Kamloops > After Dark
Luminocity is a FREE week-long public art project organized by the Kamloops Art Gallery featuring video projection, new media works and events in public spaces throughout downtown Kamloops. This new off-site initiative is a forum for independent media arts regionally, nationally and internationally. Enlivening public spaces in unexpected ways, Luminocity embraces new creative concepts and modes of expression in the media arts field and encourages diverse audience engagement outside the Gallery’s regular programming. It includes over 20 artists and multiple sites with weekend performances by bands and DJs.
Inspired by public art events such as Nuit Blanche, this is the KAG’s inaugural presentation, with videos projected in storefronts and on the facades of buildings throughout downtown Kamloops and events, installations, performances and video screenings at the Old Courthouse and Riverside Park.
Opening Hallowe’en night, the event begins with a Lost Souls Parade, merging mobile media projects with theatrical and visual spectacle drawn from Latin American traditions that celebrate life and death and the passage of time. Site-specific projects evoke the shift from light to dark as fall and winter emerge and the time changes. See Events and Locations pages for details.
