No time for art with a busy workload? Late night opening on Thursday nights at RMIT Gallery is the perfect way to enjoy art after hours.
Pop in to the gallery on the way home, and take advantage of the convenient central city location to catch up on the gallery’s diverse exhibitions.
RMIT Gallery Director Suzanne Davies said that Late Night Thursdays at RMIT Gallery was responding to demand, building on the popularity of Thursday first night openings of exhibitions, along with Saturday opening times.
“There is great energy in the city, with so many people living and working around RMIT University and Melbourne Central, and RMIT Gallery is located at the heart of it all. So come on in after work and see what’s on offer,“ she said.
Ms Davies said that RMIT Gallery’s Late Night Thursday is in step with other main cultural centres in the city, such as the State Library of Victoria and Fed Square, including ACMI and NGV Studio.
“It means if you are in the city, you can make a night of it after work, see an exhibition at RMIT Gallery then head off to other cultural activities on offer,“ she said.
RMIT Gallery boasts Melbourne’s most vibrant public art and design gallery, exploring all aspects of visual culture; Australian and international design, fashion, architecture, fine art, craft, new media and technology.
Throughout RMIT Gallery’s 2012 exhibition program there will be special events on Late Night Thursdays so that everyone can have the opportunity to participate in the public programs of artist talks and events, which provide an enjoyable and social means of experiencing contemporary culture.
Visitors can now see 2112 Imagining the Future (until 28 January). Nominated by critics as currently the best exhibition in town, it features astounding works by more than 25 artists from around the globe, focusing on the impact of science fiction and real science in the visual arts and asking the question; what will the world look like 100 years from now?
