Update 11 February 2020:
The annual i Light Singapore 2020 light art festival, scheduled to be held from 6 to 29 March 2020, will be postponed. The new dates for the Festival will be announced in due course.
With the current Disease Outbreak Response System Condition (DORSCON) level stepped up to Orange amidst the 2019 novel coronavirus situation, the postponement of i Light Singapore 2020 is in line with the advisory to cancel or defer non-essential large-scale events.
Furthermore, some of the artworks and complementary activities lined up for the upcoming Festival will require visitors to come into close contact with the artworks or other individuals.
Several artists have also encountered some delays in fabricating their artworks due to the current situation. In this regard, postponing the Festival to a later date will allow visitors to have a more optimal experience with the artworks and programme line-up.
The artists whose artworks have been selected for i Light Singapore 2020 will be invited to present their works when we identify a suitable date to bring back the event for all to enjoy.
Presented by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), i Light Singapore 2020 will continue to spotlight sustainable living through its light art installations and programming, as the topic of sustainability takes centre stage at this year’s Festival. Through this year’s theme Re:Light, Re:Live, Re:Imagine, local and international artists were invited to create artworks that seek to encourage conversations about our lifestyles and decision-making to achieve a more sustainable future.
URA hopes that the Festival’s line-up of artworks and programming will inspire visitors and enable them to appreciate that small but consistent changes to their daily habits can impact on broader issues like climate change. In the long run, the aim is for every visitor to re-evaluate their consumption behaviour, and do their part in conserving resources and reducing waste.
Many artists have responded with creative ideas that explore and reimagine the endless potential of everyday objects as well as waste, and repurpose them into dazzling light art installations to light up the nights at Marina Bay.
i Light Singapore 2020 will be held from 6 to 29 March 2020, 7.30pm to 11pm daily with extended hours to 12am on Fridays and Saturdays.
Admission to the Festival is free.
