Light Art First Glow

In cooperation with Light Art Biennial from Austria, Ptuj is to host light objects by various artists, such as Manfred Kielnhofer, Christoph Luckeneder, Mounty R. P. Zentara and Alexandre Murucci.

Korean artist Jeongmoon Choi will also exhibit her light drawings. Installations by Art Stays’ artists (Duan Fier) will join and complement the visiting works of art.

The Light Art Project is by Jernej Forbici, a conceptual upgrade of Art Stays projects from 2005, when the festival carried the name Light Please.
