Presented every two years, Luminocity is a FREE week-long video art exhibition showcasing video projects by local, national, and international artists, in unexpected public spaces throughout the downtown core of Kamloops. 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, and site-specific installations at Riverside Park. Luminocity is a unique offering to take in video art projects from a diversity of artists and to explore the city of Kamloops in a new way.
