Have you ever wondered what secret tunnels and buildings are hidden under the cities streets?
Illumini Event 2010 will be held in an underground rustic location in East London, and promises to be an exciting and historical look into the history of the secret underground city. The old rustic 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 London’s 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, that 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. We take promotion very seriously and have a great track record with our featured artists.
