Powerhouse Late at Powerhouse Museum
If you've ever wanted to walk through a museum while the moon is up – maybe a little bit buzzed while you're at it – this winter you can.
After a successful run of Culture Up Late Thursdays over summer, the Powerhouse Museum is reviving its Powerhouse Late evenings until the end of June. It's staying open until 9pm every Thursday with a special after-hours program and exhibition experience, with each week revolving around a different theme (it kicked off in May with an exploration of food). There'll be free tours through the exhibitions, live music performances, DJ sets, film screenings and even an al fresco Campari cocktail bar on the museum's Harris Street Terrace.
On May 20 photographs from the Powerhouse collection are being blown up via large-scale projections for a night dedicated to photography. Queer Screen, the team behind the Mardi Gras Film Festival, is taking over with short films about the queer experience, plus virtual reality and video art, on May 27.
Take a behind-the-scenes tour of the Powerhouse's digitisation studio on June 3, with live music and a suite of digital experiences throughout the museum. And on June 10, residents from the NSW Creative Industry and Sydney Observatory are staging a takeover of their own (program out soon).
Electronic Music Conference is hosting a selection of live music, performances and visual art on June 17. And on July 1, attendees will be the first to view the Powerhouse's new exhibition Eucalyptusdom, which focuses on the native gum tree.
Entry to all Powerhouse Late events is free.
From 5pm to 9pm.
