Fine artists, printmakers, illustrators, graffiti artists, DJs and musicians have been invited, by Solent Showcase in partnership with Vivid, to create new work to be projected, on a grand scale, onto the historic Guildhall and Solent University’s Sir James Matthews buildings in the Cultural Quarter Square. Artists will have the opportunity to create light drawings and animations live on the night, using newly designed software.
There will also be community workshops with young people in Southampton with their work being projected each night, and there will be a chance to try on the night for anyone keen to have a go.
