Sans façon, a collaborative art practice between British artist, Tristan Surtees, and French architect, Charles Blanc, are currently touring their public light installation: Limelight: Saturday Night.

The work was chosen to form part of a series of works commissioned to mark the launch of ARTISPHERE, a new cultural centre in Arlington,Virginia. Over the next 18 months Sans façon will take Limelight: Saturday Night to visit ten cities, to install and record a selection of Saturday nights from streets around the world.

The cities for 2010 are:

  • Glasgow, August 27th and 28th
  • Newcastle, September 3rd and 4th
  • Inverness, September 10th and 11th
  • Bruxelles, October 2nd
  • London, October 4th 5th and 6th
  • Arlington, VA, October 8th, 9th and 10th

Here’s hoping they bring it to Edmonton in 2011!!
