James Turrell’s Night Life

Exhibition and Shows

17 Dec 2019 to 31 Dec 2020

See the GOMA in a new light. As the sky shifts to dusk, James Turrell’s permanent architectural light installation Night Life 2018 illuminates the Gallery of Modern Art from within. Through shifts in tempo, hue and intensity of colour over 88 minutes, the artist invites us to consider how we’re affected by light. A decade after the opening of GOMA, this dynamic work realises the architects’ vision of animating the building’s façade at night.

Due to current advice on public gatherings, please contact the host of this event to confirm it is proceeding as planned.
