Nocturnal – Exhibition

Exhibition and Shows

15 Mar 2023 to 26 Mar 2023 Daily Event

As night falls and we are snuggled sound asleep in our beds, another world comes to life. Shadows are cast by the glowing streetlights. Animals awaken from their daytime slumber to forage for food. The sky is filled with millions of twinkling stars.

Nocturnal will take you on a journey into the night. An exhibition exploring light and dark featuring original picture book art from the State Library’s Peter Williams Collection.

See extraordinary paintings, take in the sights and sounds of the nocturnal world, play with light and shadow, read a book by torchlight and gaze at the night sky projection. Can you find a constellation? Or even a shooting star?

Free exhibition, no tickets required. Suitable for all ages. The Story Place Gallery, State Library of Western Australia, Perth Cultural Centre.
