LUMINEX: DTLA’s Outdoor Walkable Digital Art Exhibition

PLSN Staff • Projection Connection News • April 8, 2021

LOS ANGELES – This Saturday, April 10 in the South Park district of DTLA, LUMINEX is hosting a one-night only outdoor walkable digital art exhibition that’s free and open to the public. Using DTLA buildings as backdrops, six local artists are using Panasonic’s projection technology to project audio and visual art installations. The goal: use the power of art to bring healing to the community after the events of the past year, and safely re-connect culturally with one another. In addition to being open to the public in person, this exhibit will be livestreamed to viewers around the world, showing the power of technology to create immersive experiences and connect audiences in new ways.  More information on this highly immersive experience is below.   

 What:                 LUMINEX, curated by NOW Art Foundation, is hosting an outdoor walkable digital art exhibition, using DTLA’s buildings as backdrops. Six video and audio installations using Panasonic projection technology will be featured within a 5-block walkable radius. The various projectors being used allow images to be crystal clear, and prevent shadows to ensure no disruptions in the immersion of the experience.

One night only, open to the public. More here and below on each installation.
