Immerse Yourself at Luminary, a Performance Festival at The Midway

One of our favorite venues in San Francisco is The Midway, an arts-and-music complex at the southeastern edge of the Dogpatch. It’s going to be at its very best this weekend for Luminary, an installation-and-performance festival centered on the intersection of art and technology.

There’s a huge number of works on display. It’s got the largest-ever immersive installation of Montreal artist Maotik’s Flow, a 360-degree, self-contained universe of real-time wind, tidal, and Earth data. If you’ve been unable to get yourself inside the perpetually sold-out Color Factory, Tom Stayte’s Selfie installation will be here — as will a brand-new neon work by Meryl Pataky, who recently curated an exhibit at the unmissable Museum of Neon Art in Glendale. Models clad in Behnaz Farahi‘s “sight-reactive, shape-changing fabric” will stroll around while music headliner Machinedrum plays cuts off his latest album, Human Energy. And attendees can get to see a demo of SprayPainter‘s new printing technology, which reproduces exact replicas of any image on your smartphone, and on any surface.

Luminary comes months after a similar, sold out festival in March that Future Fires also staged. See the full list of performers, artists, and musicians here.

Luminary, Saturday, Nov. 4, 7 p.m. – 2 a.m., at the Midway, 900 Marin St. $29.50-$150; Tickets here.
