Tuesday Trend: Art Installations at Events

BELIEVE by Laura Kimpton and Jeff Schomberg

A large scale installation has the power to change an environment to make it’s audience feel all kinds of different emotions; awe, contentment, happiness, uneasiness… Not to mention the shear beauty of something so huge, tangible and, in most cases, temporary. A statement art piece at an event can bring a whole new dimension to a space or creative concept and elevate the attendees experience to a new level, not to mention the Instagrammability!

In recent years it’s become more and more common to see these installations at events, or maybe it just seems that way because they tend to go viral on social media pretty quick! Here are some of the standouts from around the world to feast your eyes on.

Festival Art

Coachella

Well it is called a Music and Arts Festival, and sets the bar each year for art at music festivals with their signature Balloon Chains by Robert Bose and colourful chill zones, a necessity in the middle of the Californian desert. These pieces make getting from your tent to the main stage that much better.

Burning Man

There is something about Burning Man which is completely other worldly, mainly due to the moonscape-esque environment stretching as far as the eye can see. The huge art pieces which emerge at Black Rock City during the week long festivities are some of the most outlandish, innovative and interactive you’ll see at any festival, and most will only last for the duration of the festival – they burn the pieces on the last night.

Fashion Show Art

Dior

A distinctly feminine aesthetic defines Dior, and what says femininity more than 300,000 delphinium stems planted over a giant man made mountain? This was one of the most talked about runways of last year’s Paris fashion week, largely due to this incredible entryway, so it was worth every penny. Dior consistently tops itself with their beautiful runway installations, using colour, construction and different materials to bring something new to this ever changing industry.

White Night Melbourne

Just last weekend we saw the fourth annual White Night Melbourne take the city by storm once again turning the city on its head in a ‘dusk ‘til dawn celebration of culture and creativity’. White Night displays a huge array of installation, lighting, exhibitions, street performances, film, music, dance and interactive events across Melbourne until the sunrise brings you back to reality.

Vivid Live is one of Sydney’s biggest events, and growing larger every year.

Their 2016 program is to announced very soon and is sure to be bright indeed.
