What is Luz y Vanguardias?
Salamanca hosts Light and Avant-garde Arts, an annual event that transforms the city into the national center of reference for a recently introduced art form that combines the worlds of plastic art, video creation and installation.
The fourth edition will take place from June 13th to June 16th 2019. The past three editions showed themselves as an open event that was enjoyed by the thousands of locals and visitors who came to the city attracted by its celebration.
Light and Avant-garde Arts is a festive and cultural event that fills Salamanca with art and light. Visitors and locals can have a walk around the city and discover the latest artistic trends while enjoying Salamanca’s rich history and World Heritage. The projections on monuments are displayed for several hours each night of the festival. See the “Tour” section for more information.
The streets of Salamanca and their unique buildings become the festival’s stage where a selection of international artists, university students and companies in the fields of video creation and installation, project their creations, especially designed to relate with the architectural features of the selected buildings.
Some of the selected buildings for this edition are: the City Hall (Plaza Mayor), the New Cathedral (Plaza de Anaya) etc.
The festival makes Salamanca the Spanish capital of the light art and the artistic creation related to this new trend. It is intended to be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of their age or artistic tastes.
