Light to Night Festival 2020: Invisible Cities

Light to Night Festival returns to the heart of Singapore’s Civic District in January as a marquee event of Singapore Art Week where art, innovation and ideas intersect.

Over the two weeks of the Festival, art extends beyond the walls of Civic District’s cultural institutions, and into the precinct’s public spaces, where the Civic District is transformed with light, sound and movement.

Inspired by the theme Invisible Cities, the fourth edition of the Festival draws one into the rich imaginary worlds of artists, writers, musicians, designers, filmmakers, performers and many other creative talents with a full line up of programmes that span from day to night, across five of Civic District’s most iconic cultural institutions – National Gallery Singapore, Asian Civilisations Museum, The Arts House, Victoria Theatre & Victoria Concert Hall, Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay.

Through creative collaboration and intervention into the Civic District’s built and natural environs, which spans across five cultural institutions as well as the Padang, Empress Lawn and Esplanade Park, the Festival explores the invisible geographies of the Civic District, and how the perceptions of place are shaped by personal influence memory, desire, loss as well as by cultural forces, including history and media.
