White Night Melbourne

The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) is part of White Night Melbourne, an event that transforms the city into an all-night wonderland. Alongside Melbourne’s finest arts and cultural venues, ACMI will open its doors for this entire 12-hour event, providing free entry to a special selection of film, exhibitions and a chill-out lounge.

The Lightwell will be converted into a LightLounge – a chill-out zone allowing visitors to submerge in a sound and image soaked environment. Light projections and VJ/DJs will transform the space making it the perfect place to stop and relax during White Night Melbourne.

In Gallery 1, explore music video as an art form in Spectacle: The Music Video Exhibition. With over 350 clips spanning nine decades, the exhibition examines how the art of the music video has progressed, from clips of 1920s jazz legends through to videos by Madonna, Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire and other contemporary artists.

Gallery 2 hosts the multi-channel video work, Angelica Mesiti: The Calling. The recipient of The Inaugural Ian Potter Moving Image Commission, the Sydney/Paris-based Mesiti worked in Turkey, Greece and the Canary Islands to research and film an intriguing portrait of whistling languages, a disappearing method of communication used in isolated rural communities.

Cinema 1 hosts the Vladmaster ViewmasterTM Experience, an intriguing mix of private viewing in a communal space, where audience members are provided with a ViewMasterTM viewer and a set of Vladmaster disks to interact with two stories over a 20 minute period.

White Night Melbourne takes over Melbourne from Saturday 22 February @ 7 pm to  Sunday 23 February @ 7 am.
