One night only, Saturday, July 18, Night Light: Multimedia Garden Party blankets SOMArts Cultural Center in luminous art installations, including audiovisual performances and performative interventions by 30 artists, and digital and cinematic projections by 27 artists.
This year Night Light evolves in a new direction: as an homage to the Bay Area’s rabble-rousers, trouble-makers, independents and outliers, in conjunction with Making a Scene: 50 Years of Alternative Bay Area Spaces (July 9–August 20). Making a Scene features more than 30 additional artists whose work can be seen during Night Light. That’s the work of almost 90 Bay Area artists, in just one night!
Now in its fifth year, Night Light utilizes SOMArts’ post-industrial indoor space and grounds, including the garden path, street-side loading bay, theater, Bay Gallery and Main Gallery to display a multitude of applications of light in art.
This year Night Light centers a series of robust, sometimes overlapping performances and site-specific art installations that activate SOMArts post-industrial space with the spirit of activism, embodying the idea of “making a scene” in opposition to the status quo and uniting communities in pursuit of social justice.
