Hellenic Museum: Up Late!
Kickstart your Friday night with free after dark Museum access, live DJ, food and drink stalls, curator talks and more.
19 Jan 2024, 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Hellenic Museum, 280 William St, Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia
Kickstart your Friday night at the Hellenic Museum, where luminous outdoor artworks meet illuminated manuscripts.
In 2023 the Hellenic Museum has launched a trio of contemporary outdoor artworks:
- Memento Mori, a series of three large murals inspired by The Fates and their glimmering golden thread
- Luminescence, a bouquet of eight towering, organically styled sculptures casting coloured light
- The Oracle, an interactive AI experience who will answer just about any question you dare to ask!
UP LATE will celebrate these installations as the sun sets and their luminous qualities begin to shine. Join us for free late night gallery access, hourly curator talks, live DJ, drinks, food by The Cypriot Kitchen, coffee by Melvourni and more!
Curator talks will be held at 7PM, 8PM and 9PM meeting at reception. Join a Hellenic Museum curator for a 10-minute lap of the outdoor artworks, discussing each work, its process and inspirations, along with the opportunity for questions.
Memento Mori, Luminescence and The Oracle have been supported by the Melbourne City Revitalisation Fund, a partnership between the Victorian Government and the City of Melbourne.
