Sixty artists explore the nocturnal.
Curated by Tom Hammick.
The evening hour too gives us the irresponsibility which
darkness and lamplight bestow. We are no longer quite ourselves.
– Virginia Woolf, Street Haunting: A London Adventure, 1930
‘Towards Night’ is an exhibition exploring the nocturnal through paintings, prints and drawings by over sixty artists. Drawing on the nineteenth century European Romantic tradition, the show surveys contemporary and historical connections to wonderment and dystopia at dusk, twilight, night and dawn.
Howard Hodgkin’s painting Dark as Egypt’s Night (2005-2013) concludes the exhibition.
