North Carolina Museum of Art: EXHIBITION: Night(Light)

( Sat., Sep. 30, 2017 - Sun., Jan. 28, 2018 )

North Carolina Museum of Art, 2110 Blue Ridge Road, Raleigh, NC 27607-6407


Night(Light) explores light as it interacts with darkness in photography. In its purest form, photography harnesses light. The images give shape to light, immortalizing and suspending it. 

The eerie feeling of night is not lost in these photographs from the Museum’s permanent collection. Under the cover of darkness, some photographs reveal nighttime mischief and behavior. Others convey the loneliness of night and the lurking desolation in each empty street and unlit hallway.


On view in the East Building, Level B, Allen G. Thomas Jr. Photography Gallery ​​​​
