The lights go on in Melbourne in mid-June when a huge exhibition from the Tate in England, Light: Works from Tate’s Collection, arrives at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI).
The exhibition includes generations of artists from Yayoi Kusama and Claude Monet to James Turrell and J M W Turner. It runs from June 16 to November 13, with many famous artworks making their Australian debuts.
ACMI Director and CEO Katrina Sedgwick said, “This is a rare opportunity to experience the expansive collection of one of Britain’s most famous cultural institutions right here in Melbourne.
“ACMI is proud to present a treasure trove of artworks inspired by a phenomenon so fundamental to moving image creation. Through its exploration of light as both a subject and a medium, this extraordinary exhibition enables our visitors to explore surprising and enlightening interconnections across time and artform.”
More information will arrive on the release of the program, which will include talks, workshops, after-hours events, performances and more.
