For 17 nights Liverpool’s waterfront will be transformed into an illuminated outdoor art gallery.
Twelve large scale light artworks will create a 2km trail in the fourth edition of River of Light.
The theme this year is ‘Rhythm of the Light’ with each of the artworks being inspired by the relationship between the city, music and light.
Some of the highlights include:
Dance Together – Canning Dock Quayside, Museum of Liverpool
This celebration of club culture will be accompanied by a collection of digital images from across the 20+ years of Chibuku in the atrium of the Museum of Liverpool.
Inspired by Diwali – which is on the 4 November – and artist Chila Kumari Burman's love of Liverpool, this collection of neon artworks will take over the front of Liverpool Town Hall and be accompanied by an Indian and Bollywood inspired soundtrack.
Spriteworks – Canal Basin, Pier Head
The first outdoor commission from Warrington-based artist Pastel Castles, this artwork is inspired by classic 90s computer games. Working in partnership with local collective The Kazimier, Spriteworks brings together a 3D visualisation of classic 2D gaming with a bespoke soundtrack created by the artist on her original Gameboy.
The Pool – Chavasse Park, Liverpool ONE
The Pool is a giant field of light comprised of over 100 interactive LED platforms that respond to touch, creating incredible colourful light effects when walked on. The piece will be accompanied by an atmospheric soundtrack curated by the artist.
