Nite Art Returns

Here’s one for you art lovers, cultured folk and night wanderers: Nite Art is returning to Melbourne, bigger and better than ever.

As part of a wider concept that has taken off world wide, Nite Art aims to connect the public with artists and galleries through interactive installations. Spread across the CBD, Federation Square and the University of Melbourne, Nite Art collates and curates exhibitions and instillations that are entirely accessible to the public, and enable interaction between the viewer and the artist. You can book yourself a walk, listen to a talk, and get to know the artistic side of Melbourne a whole lot better!

Nite Art has also partnered with Open House Melbourne to give the snoopy ones amongst us the chance to take a peek at places we’d otherwise only dream of glimpsing. Who's with me?

There really is something for everyone at this awesome cultural event. For those that don’t mind things slightly macabre, you’ll have the chance to wander through Australia’s largest collections of human tissue specimens. Yup, really! Housed in the Harry Brookes Allan Museum at the University of Melbourne, four resident artists have produced stunning pieces in response to the specimens that surrounded and inspired them. And this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what’s on!

Nite Art is on for one night only, so you’ll need to get yourself a strategy to cram all things you want to see, in to one evening.

Nite Art is taking place on Thursday, 23rd of July, 6pm – late.
