Within the framework of the Prado-Retiro UNESCO Candidacy for World Heritage, the city council requested us to start a great artistic event to take place in the locations and monuments of these areas of Madrid and to establish a contemporary dialect with the Institutions and spaces.
To do so, we designed a programme that included plastic and visual artists who work with Light as their inspirational element. More than 15 pieces and installations of both national and international artists inhabited and transformed the perception of Paseo del Prado, El Retiro, Puerta de Alcalá, Cibeles, Neptuno and Apolo fountains and the surroundings creating an outdoor museum. A first Light Festival in Madrid.
Madrid sets itself to conquer UNESCO with the cultural festivity Luna de Octubre.
