Happy Together + I have a dream -shown in the Festival of Love

Goetz, Lothar (2014) Happy Together + I have a dream -shown in the Festival of Love. [Artefact]

Item Type: Artefact


Artist Lothar Götz has created the seven colours of ‘love’ which you can see across the site. On The Clore Ballroom floor, he has created Happy Together, an enormous floor painting incorporating all the colours and representing ballroom dances of years gone by.

Commissioned as part of What Love Is: the visitor and interpretation centre for Festival of Love is located in the foyer of Queen Elizabeth Hall. What Love Is graphically explains Festival of Love's seven parts through colour, giant maps guiding visitors around the festival site, film, photos and poetry. There's also a bar featuring seven cocktails, each designed to get you in the mood. Lothar Götz's seven colours for seven loves are displayed at What Love Is, and flow out around the site.

The festival of love welcomes visitors to enjoy and experience their free indoor and outdoor installations and
artworks this summer, which have been commissioned to explore the seven Ancient Greek themes of love and will transform the site for the Festival of Love.
