The New Artistic Movement Music Festival Lovers Should Keep An Eye On
12 de enero de 2018Sara Araujo
Art installations are now a very popular trend; here’s how they were originally created.
If you love to visit new exhibits at a museum or attend swanky art events, then perhaps you've come across these intriguing artistic assemblies where hypnotizing sculptures are dotted across colorful rooms and the building's exterior shines with UV light. All these elements are part of an emerging art movement that was born from the digital era we live in. These quirky exhibitions express our internal thoughts and beliefs through the fluid powers of technology. Some artists are experts at creating these immersive experiences. The first one that comes to mind is Yayoi Kusama and her infinity exhibits where red dots abound and galaxies are created with a few twinkling lights and well-placed mirrors. Kusama's work and that of other installation artists now live happily in our Instagram feeds, but as we pose next to the polka dot phallic figurines, we sort of forget why we were there in the first place.
These three dimensional art exhibits change our perceptions and awaken dormant emotions, from love and hate to disgust and confusion. It is time-consuming to create these exhibits, and the results are astounding. So, it's no wonder that photographers and lovers of light effects gravitate towards them.
These spaces absorb the viewer, and artists are well aware of the effects they have on the audience, which is why they strive to create even more complex and unconventional installations. One of the best examples that comes to mind is Bruce Nauman's claustrophobic work, where he would create cramped rooms and corridors, making his viewer feel abandoned and forgotten. Art is not confined to a canvas or a photograph; it is a living, breathing space that we inhabit on a daily basis.
Museums and art galleries are not the only places where you can experience these installations. Now they can be found in spaces like music festivals. The Day For Night Festival is a place that combines amazing line ups and mesmerizing installations that blow your mind.
