The Gertrude Association (not for profit) is a volunteer run group dedicated to exhibiting contemporary new media. Since 2008, it has produced outdoor site-specific projection-art events that exhibit professional, emerging and community artists. The Association’s premier event is the annual Gertrude Street Projection Festival. Other events have been produced in Melbourne and on King Island as part of the Tasmanian Arts Festival, Ten days on the Island. Various team members have a range of projects in development.
Festival Spotlight: Lichtfestival Gent
aka Ghent Light Festival.
Being one of Australia’s only open-air projection festivals we are always on the look out for other remarkable examples getting projections out in the public. One such noteworthy Belgium based initiative is the Lichtfestival in Gent that ran the 26th-29th of January this year.
Much like Gertrude Street Projection Festival it utilises everything from screen spaces, light-based installations and full scale projection mapping to bring some warmth back into the cold (European) winter. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the array of lights.
More information about the Lichtfestival via their website.
