Illumini Event 2010 presents Secret Subterranean London

Applications are invited from artists of all disciplines, whose work or part of their work illuminates, or lights up in some way. This can be from the way it is displayed; e.g, projection, TV screens etc, or incorporating lighting into the actual artwork in some way - neon, LEDs, EL wire & panels, glow products & paint etc. If your work glows or lights up we want to hear from you. Site-specific work and new works are also welcome.

Have you ever wondered what secret tunnels and buildings are hidden under the cityís streets? Illumini Event 2010 will be held in an underground location in East London, and promises to be an exciting and historical look into the history of the secret underground city. The old subterranean dark labyrinth, with its many rooms, alleyways and cells, will be transformed into several areas of historical underground London, eg: world war bunkers, disused station, crypts, historical water ways and many more, long forgotten hidden secrets of London. During the event there will be workshops and talks about secrets that are hidden in Londonís underground.

The venue for the event will be divided into zones. Each zone will represent a special hidden underground London location. Artists will transform their space to take the viewer back in time, recreating their chosen underground location which inspires them. Then using their individual spaces as a platform, to exhibit their illuminating art work.

Illumini Event Sep 2008, attracted over 3,000 people on its opening night and 7,145 guests during its two weeks. Artists, from professionals to students, gained commissions, sales and major press coverage and interviews through Illumini.
