Art in the Dark returns to illuminate installations and urban spaces for the Auckland public, from November 7th, transforming Western Park into a bustling hub under the bright lights.

Held over three nights, Art in the Dark challenges artists both in New Zealand and abroad to create projects that not only fit the aesthetics of outdoor urban areas but that most also illuminate the dark using sustainable materials and energy wherever possible.

Over 40 artworks will light up even the darkest nooks and crannies of Ponsonby’s own green valley, as the free event becomes a platform for bright minds to show off their talents and show the incredible glow of ingenuity this event has brought to the city.

Having started in 2010, Art in the Dark has grown into Auckland’s premiere light festival, with 2012 seeing over 40,000 people attending, witnessing over thirty light installations – with projections, performances and large scale immersive experiences from some of the most innovative creators the public will have a chance to see.

“This delightful event, which came out of nowhere three years ago, turns art viewing into an adventure sport in the otherwise under-used park.” - Janet Mcalister, NZ Herald, 17 Nov 2012
