Right at Marina Bay Waterfront, discover i Light Marina Bay 2017, Asia’s leading sustainable light art festival running in its fifth edition.

The light installation has been going on since the beginning of March, showcasing stunning and fanciful visual treats of nature and the city coming together in new light. Some of the artworks featured designs by our local Singaporeans and artworks include also international artists from Canada, France, Indonesia, Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, U.K. and USA.

Take a tour around the iconic Marina Bay and bask in the beautiful night atmosphere and view exhibits like (ultra) light network; portrays the duality of light as luminous energy and light as immaterial quality, Dande-lier; conveys a feeling of weightlessness by using lightweight umbrellas, Passage of Inner Reflection; enters into a tunnel that depicts a passage of reality, which blends light and nature and connecting emotions with ‘nature’ and many more.

The international artists’ artworks feature the Horizontal Interference; formed by a colourful cord construction consisting architecture of wires, itself already beautiful in the day, turns into a spectacular beauty at nightfall, Hybycozo; the artists have borrowed everything from ancient Islamic tiles to the patterns created by particle physicists to show harmonic relationships and patterns in the natural world into sculptural form, i Light You So Much; aims to share a life experience of an object using light more than just being utilitarian and functional, Northern Lights; a light-art piece inspired by the enthralling experience of the aurora borealis and so much more to explore! 

What’s more, the venue offers up incredible line-up of programmes and activities not to be missed! From delectable outdoor dining options and artisan flea to engaging artist workshops and community events, the exhibition at Marina Bay Waterfront promises enriching experience throughout the Art Festival 2017!

Watch also the spectacular Secret Galaxies, a 3D mapping project on the façade of the iconic Art Science Museum, presenting a confluence of visual images based on the humanistic relationships with the night sky.

With the innovative and sustainable light art installations from Singapore and around the world to illuminate the iconic Marina Bay, i Light Marina Bay 2017 will transform the heart of the city of Singapore into a magnificent display of colours and creativity.
