GLOW is a light art festival which is organised by the GLOW Eindhoven foundation. GLOW can be described as an exhibition in the public space of Eindhoven of 35 famous national and international light artists. The light artworks are connected by a walking route.

Besides the light artworks and numerous side events there are also innovative, unique works of art that are created by young talents.

Shadows & Light

The year’s theme is called ‘Shadows & Light’.  “Every picture has its shadows. And it has some source of light. Blindness, blindness and sight”. (Joni Mitchell)

No light without shadows, no image without content. With this year’s theme GLOW 2018 searches for this duality. Effectively, it’s not only about the ultimate contrast between black and white, but also about much and little, inside and outside, restraint and abundance…light and shadow. Within the contradiction, the story is born; there’s no experience without contrast. ‘Shadows’ and ‘Light’ lacking, we would find ourselves in a grey landscape in which life evaporates.

The GLOW mission statement for the coming years is concise and convincing:

“Eindhoven makes the difference in Light Art”.
