Amsterdam Light Festival 2017-18


From 30 November 2017 until 21 January 2018 Amsterdam Light Festival features 35 artworks by artists from around the world, illuminating the center of Amsterdam for 53 consecutive days.

Amsterdam Light Festival strives to create innovative and unique works of art, which is why the festival works together with a host of talented artists, architects and designers. They submitted their trailblazing ideas on account of a worldwide Call for Concepts, after which a carefully curated jury made a selection of the best ideas. These concepts were then realized by Amsterdam Light Festival. 


No less than 1800 artists were interested in last year's Call for Concepts. This resulted in 900 submissions by designers, architects and artists, from 45 different countries all over the world. 35 artworks were realized, one of which is 'thinline' by world famous Chinese artists and activist Ai Weiwei.

Visit the water exhibition by booking a Water Colors cruise or admire the new land exhibition at the Marineterrein Amsterdam.
