The Library was flooded with bright lights and sweeping soundscapes on Saturday 20 February for White Night Melbourne, a dusk ‘til dawn celebration of culture and creativity across the city.
More than 21,000 stargazers were mesmerised by Ideation in the Dome, a multi-sensory world of interwoven soundscapes and illuminated projections that explored the idea of the library as an ecosystem of imagination. Ideation was a collaboration among four Australian artists: Nick Azidis, Lisa Greenaway, Adem Jaffers, Bentley Dean.
Thousands more White Night revellers descended on the Library forecourt to enjoy Landscaping architecture, an immersive large-scale video installation from artists Amanda Morgan and James HH Morgan. A live music set from DJ JNETT resulted in an impromptu colourful dance party across the steps.
Thanks to all the artists, stargazers, revellers and dancers who helped us celebrate another incredible White Night Melbourne at the Library. Here’s a selection of our favourite moments from the night:
