GLOW is a world top 5 light art festival happening each year in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.


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”.

GLOW – International Forum of Light in Art and Architecture
Eindhoven 2010 I 5th Edition I ‘(Re-)Discovering Eindhoven’

Due to the dedication of CityDynamiek Eindhoven, from November, 6th to 13th, 2010, the city center of Eindhoven turns again into a forum of interventions, installations, performances and events based on the phenomena of artificial light.

about ‘Fenestra’:

During GLOW Galerie Van de Water and Stichting PEK, Platform Artists from Eindhoven, work together to show light art by young artists from Brabant. Jaap van den Elzen presents his light installation Fenestra for the Don Bosco Square, supported by a soundscape of Augusto Meyer. Van den Elzen uses the windows on the square and transforms them into a layered, spatial composition of light and color. The soundscape enhances the experience by reflecting appropriate materials, emotion and shapes into a world of electronic sound.
Suzanne van Rest shows her installations Space Between Thoughts and Soft Warmth of Southern air. Opening hours from 19.00 – 22.00 hrs.
