Lynch By Night
Held on the final three Fridays of the show, Lynch by Night is chance for visitors to enjoy exclusive after-hours access to the ‘David Lynch: Between Two Worlds’ exhibition, including talks, tours, dining, bars and an ambient backdrop of sounds.
Alongside his esteemed career as a filmmaker, David Lynch has worked as a visual artist for 50 years, producing an extensive body of paintings, photography and works on paper. ‘David Lynch: Between Two Worlds’ is a rare opportunity to consider Lynch’s entire creative vision and the relationships between his practice as an artist, filmmaker and musician. Developed closely with the artist, the QAGOMA exhibition features more than 200 works and is organised around three ideas – ‘Man and machine’, ‘The extra-ordinary’, and ‘Psychic Aches’. Moving between the porous divide of the body and the world it inhabits, the exhibition explores the subjects of industry and organic phenomena; representations of inner conflict; and the possibility of finding a deeper reality in our experience of the everyday.
Lynch by Night will take you through a deeper journey of the alluring work by David Lynch.
