From its launch in 2012, Lumen Prize has engaged with a wide range of audiences globally. The first Lumen Prize Exhibition - made up of 50 selected works from 13 countries globally - debuted at Gallery 27, Cork Street, London in January 2013.  It then travelled the world - including stops in Riga, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

Lumen's 2013/14 tour of 50 selected works - from 22 countries globally - opened in ArcadeCardiff, Cardiff, Wales in October, 2013 before travelling to NYC's Gallery 61, London's Triangle Space at the Chelsea College of Art and The Space in Hong Kong's fashionable Hollywood Road. The current global tour will finish at Treberfydd House, the historic country house where the Lumen Prize was founded, in Powys, Wales.

Our 2014/15 tour will open on October 15th at the brand-new Cardiff School of Art and Design, Cardiff, Wales and move to New York City in late November before visiting London in January and other locations around the world.

The Lumen Prize Exhibition is installed on large-scale screens, PCs, tablets, smartphones and high-definition projectors at all of its venues. Many works are also shown in print form or as interactive displays. At every venue, the Lumen exhibition engages with local audiences and artists through symposia, seminars, workshops and educational outreach. It also shares the curation of its shows with local art students wherever possible.
