***About the festival
What many people may not know, is that the light art installations of Amsterdam Light Festival are exclusively made for the festival. From an artwork in the masts of the VOC ship 'de Amsterdam' to the works that are harnessed above the Herengracht — they were all created with a specific location in mind.
Amsterdam Light Festival strives to create innovative and unique works of art, which is why the festival works together with a host of talented artists, architects and designers. They submitted their trailblazing ideas on account of a worldwide Call for Concepts, after which a carefully curated jury made a selection of the best ideas. These concepts were then realized by Amsterdam Light Festival.
No less than 1800 artists were interested in last year's Call for Concepts. This resulted in 900 submissions by designers, architects and artists, from 45 different countries all over the world. 35 artworks were realized, one of which is 'thinline' by world famous Chinese artists and activist Ai Weiwei.
Amsterdam Light Festival offers a stage to light artist from all over the world by presenting their work in the city for two months. The festival stimulates these artists to push their own boundaries. Through a worldwide distributed Call for Concepts they submit groundbreaking concepts. A jury selects the artworks that will become part of the festival. 1800 artists from 93 different countries were interested in participation in this edition. The Call for Concepts closed this March and the jury, led by Lennart Booij, selected 40 concepts. The festival produces these installations together with the artists.
In the 60's Californian artists such as Robert Irwin, James Turrell and Dan Flavin turned their backs to abstract painting and focused on a more sensory way of experiencing art. Light was an important element here. Light was used in various forms in their artworks: from fire to floodlights and projections to neon lamps. However, their work never escaped the context of the museum.
In contrast to the museum, contemporary light artists consider the city as their main territory. The place where advertisements, traffic lights and flickering neon pipes cream for attention, these artists see as an inspiration and challenge for their own work. All these talents have the ever-advancing technology on their side. With LED lightning and advanced projections they can tell you everything they want. They speak an international language.
