Nordic Lights opening at the Harbourfront Centre Campus Jan 27th til Feb 13th is a walkthrough of 6 large-scale light installations featuring artists from Canada, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark.
Co-produced by Fjord Studio (Oslo), the team behind the groundbreaking Norwegian light festival FJORD OSLO, the artworks are part of a global discussion around sustainability. From climate change to Covid-19, the manifestations of humanity’s influence are becoming impossible to ignore. But what is the nature of that impact? What will our shared future be? Do we have the power to ensure it is positive? NORDIC LIGHTS is designed to ask the viewers to contemplate these tough questions while experiencing joy!
Illuminated from 5 pm to 10 pm each day, the installations will be positioned at different locations around the Harbourfront Centre Campus, turning the 53,000-square-foot space on the waterfront into an open-air gallery – a naturally Covid-safe collective art experience.
Nordic Lights is the official kick-off to Nordic Bridges, a year-long initiative led by Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre fostering cultural exchange between the Nordic Region and Canada. Nordic Bridges will present an assortment of multidisciplinary contemporary art, culture, and ideas throughout 2022.
So, if you’re looking to get out, see some sparkle and enjoy a crips walk, be sure to check out Harbourfront Centre Campus for their outdoor experience, Nordic Lights.
