This great public art event underwent some changes this year. The pandemic forced it to move from its usual dates in February, and also to adapt its format, which generally has a focus on the Poblenou district and open-air sites. This autumn edition expanded throughout the district, primarily in museum interiors and other artistic creation spaces.

Curated by Maria Güell, José Luis de Vicente and Oriol Pastor, Llum BCN has a design and a personality that twins it with light festivals in cities such as Eindhoven, Prague and Lyon. The projects chosen stand out for their creativity, use of technology and the artistic will of their creators. This year’s guest artist, Eugènia Balcells, presented a double installation that created a visual dialogue between the Torre Glòries and DHUB buildings.

One aspect of the Barcelona event that distinguishes it from other light festivals is that it is a showcase both for established creators and for students from different schools in the city. This year, 16 schools took part, centred around the Parc del Center del Poblenou. The student works were judged to a specific set of criteria by a specialist jury, which included ISE’s Senior Director of Operations, Andre Hooijer.

The winning schools were the Escola Superior d’Art Dramàtic. Institut del Teatre with the installation titled CARAB and the Escola Massana with Ombres que són Llum (Shadows that are Light). The work Elemental by UPC School-CCCB’s Master in Disseny i Producció d’Espais (Master in Design and Production and Spaces) students received a special mention.

All the schools that took part in the festival will receive free invitations to attend ISE 2022.

For its eleventh edition, Llum BCN will return to its usual format: it will take place in February 2022, and public spaces will be its main stage.
