Open Call for Ontario Artists
Lumière: The Art of Light

Lumière: The Art of Light will temporarily transform Trillium Park, at Ontario Place, from March 12 to April 20, 2024. This free light exhibition allows visitors to explore the park and experience light installations developed by local artists. Utilizing innovation, light and discovery, Lumière offers the opportunity for local artists and creators to “illuminate” the park under the curatorial theme “CONNECTIONS”.

“CONNECTIONS” aims to explore the various ways in which light can create connections between people, the environment, and different aspects of our lives. The exhibition will feature light installations that showcase these connections through the categories below.​

Interactive Installations: Interactive light installations encourage visitors to actively engage and form connections. These exhibits can respond to visitors’ movements, encouraging social interaction and fostering connections between individuals.​

Nature and Light: Explore the connection between nature and light by showcasing the transformative power of light and its ability to enhance the beauty of the natural world.​

Technology and Connectivity: Embrace the role of technology in connecting people by creating visually stunning displays that evoke a sense of interconnectedness in our modern, digital age.​

Emotional Connections: Explore the emotional connections and responses light can evoke, whether it’s using vibrant colours, dynamic lighting patterns, or creating an atmosphere of warmth and coziness.
