Giving Light

Society, culture and our cities constantly reinvent themselves and evolve. The Spanish
‘City of Design’, Bilbao, is a true example of how innovation may transform urban physiognomy – from an industrial space to a more human, hospitable one.

‘Giving Light’ shows the transformation of Bilbao by using light as a central element. It aims to give light to the artistic powers hidden inside each designer.

The designers in the exhibition pass through a filter of light, in a seemingly hidden, dark place. The place becomes warm and light upon examination of the details and meticulous work of the pieces on show. The young designers showcased link the artistic
movements that inspire their work with future innovation, opening up their art by expressing it in their finished garments and communicating with their audience by interacting with exhibition visitors in this game of light and shadow.
