Light: Works from Tate’s Collection

Light: Works from Tate’s Collection features over seventy works spanning 200 years of art history, including painting, photography, sculpture, drawing, kinetic art, installation and moving image, refracting the theme of light through the sublime to the intimate, the spiritual to the scientific, on show at ACMI in Melbourne from 16 June to 13 November 2022.

Harnessing light as both material and subject, this exhibition includes groundbreaking works by Joseph Mallord William Turner, Claude Monet, Alfred Sisley, Joseph Albers, Tacita Dean, Liliane Lijn, James Turrell, Yayoi Kusama and Olafur Eliasson. Delivering an insight into the craft of cinematography and its connection to light, ACMI presents an extensive events program featuring magic lantern presentations,
late-night exhibition access, film screenings and in-conversation events, audiovisual performances, guided tours, animation workshops, and more.
