InLight returns to the VMFA Friday and Saturday night, and the light show is sure to be as spectacular as ever.
Organized by 1708 Gallery, InLight Richmond is a free public exhibition of light-based art and performances. Each year, InLight Richmond features performances, sculpture, video, and interactive projects that illuminate pathways, walls, sidewalks, green spaces, and kicks off with the Community Lantern Parade.
InLight was created in 2008 on the occasion of 1708 Gallery’s 30th birthday. Thus was born this free, public art exhibition that offers Richmond the opportunity to engage with contemporary art outside the gallery walls and to experience the city in new and unexpected ways.
InLight 2018 will take place on Friday, November 16th from 7:00 PM until midnight and on Saturday, November 17th from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM, at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
In recognition of 1708 Gallery’s 40th Anniversary, the 2018 iteration will focus on ideas of Community. Recent editorials have described two Richmonds. “RVA” encompasses revitalization, creativity and growth. “Richmond” is divided, challenged, and struggling. Artists are invited to consider this dynamic and to imagine an ideal community—ONE Richmond.
