FAÇADE FESTIVAL 2016, an immersive and dynamic projection mapping experience, is set to transform the Vancouver Art Gallery’s Robson Street façade with the work of five Vancouver-based contemporary artists from August 30th to September 5th, 2016.
Organized by the Burrard Arts Foundation in partnership with Microsoft and in collaboration with the Vancouver Art Gallery, this public art project features newly commissioned artworks by Eric Metcalfe, Barry Doupé, Rebecca Chaperon, Renée Van Halm and Chris Shier. Technical mentorship is provided by projection mapping specialists Go2 Productions.
FAÇADE FESTIVAL 2016 is the second year of this unique annual festivity that aims to provide the City of Vancouver with a dynamic and interactive approach to place-making and visual art experience in the public realm, taking cues from renowned visual arts festivals such as VIVID in Sydney, Australia, Luminato and Nuit Blanche in Toronto, which draw millions of attendees each year.
Projections will take place every evening from August 30th to September 5th, with two encore presentations featuring all five artists on September 4th and September 5th. On September 5th, the finale evening will kick off at 8pm with a special projection-mapping showcase by Go2 Productions featuring the work of award-winning cinematographer Louie Schwartzberg, followed by a second showing at 10:30pm.
