On the 30th of November 2017, the sixth edition of the most beautiful light festival of the year starts. The Amsterdam Light Festival has selected 35 light art concepts through a Call for Concepts that will be exhibited this winter in and around the canals of Amsterdam. This edition includes a special artwork of the world-famous Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei. He has made an impressive light object of almost seven kilometers long connecting all other artworks of the light festival. Ai Weiwei's artwork is the longest artwork ever showcased at the Amsterdam Light Festival. The magical play between light and water can be seen from the quayside but is even more beautiful from a canal boat.
