Harbourfront Alight for Luminato


The Toronto Harbourfront skyline is set to be transformed by renown light artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer. Planned as part of the Luminato festival (June 1-10), Hemmer's work will "entirely transform the skyline over Harbourfront".

While smaller works of Hemmer's can be seen at the Artcore Gallery, The Power Plant and the AGO, this is the Montreal native's first large-scale installation in Canada. His most recent work includes the UK installation Under Scan, which required the use of Europe's most powerful light generator.

An official announcement is expected at a press conference Tuesday at The Power Plant.
