Artist Talk: Travesías de Luz on Urban Art Light Installations
Join Spanish collective Travesías de Luz for a conversation at the Embassy of Spain as part of Fête des Lumières Georgetown Festival.
Using light as a communication channel to connect citizens with their urban spaces, Travesías de Luz’s interactive installations aim to improve the city environment by surprising passersby.
In a behind-the-scenes conversation, the artists will present their current projects and discuss previous works showcased around the world. At the end of the presentation, the members of Travesías de Luz will guide attendants on a tour of their works Ciudad Habitada and Floating Lights featured at Fête des Lumières D.C. in Georgetown.
