RMIT Gallery open for White Night Melbourne


White Night returns this Saturday February 21 with an expanded footprint, great new sites and returning favourites. And RMIT Gallery will be open from 7 pm to 7 am.

Come and join us for the last night of the interactive media art exhibition Experimenta Recharge.

The exhibition presents a collection of over 18 works from Australian and international artists, who question how technology and cultural contexts create new perspectives on knowledge.

White Night, now in its third year, is inspired by the international Nuit Blanche movement that began in Paris, France.

It provides an all-night, free cultural event with visual art, illuminations, music, food, theatre, sport, fashion, film, design and performances on display in the city.

Public transport will be running regularly right throughout the night, and the message from organisers is to arrive after midnight to beat the crowds.

Title: White Night at RMIT Gallery
Date: Saturday 21 February
Time: 7pm to 7am
