Head Lights / Talent Nights
10 weeks | 10 artists | laser art and performance | Het Nieuwe Instituut
In collaboration with 10 cultural institutes and on behalf of Rotterdam viert de stad! we presented the 10 week exhibition HEAD LIGHTS / TALENT NIGHTS. For 10 weeks, a laser art work by a different Rotterdam artist was presented on the facade of Het Nieuwe Instituut. For each weekly edition we asked a different cultural organisation to introduce an upcoming, young Rotterdam artist who they consider to be the most promising talent. Every week after sunset we celebrated the exclusive launch of the laser artworks with a music or performance act.
Head Lights / Talent Nights was initiated by the manifest Rotterdam viert de stad!
