The Museum takes part in Nocturne: Art at Night to explore this year’s theme, “Scaffold,” through the lens of immigration and journey. Begin your Nocturne tour at the Museum to discover our inspiring artists and their stunning creations, including two beacon projects:

  • Beacon project artist Margarita Fainshtein presents The Beige Room, a bland conference room that becomes an evolving canvas for the thoughts and feelings of those who dare to answer complex questions on the power of transformation.
  • Beacon project artist Ursula Handleigh presents In Deep Waters, a cinematic installation that immerses visitors in an ocean of fog, light and sound and invites interactions with the projections.
  • Artist Israel Ekanem presents Things I Wish I Said (Or Did), an interactive video project where visitors can participate by answering the title’s profound question.
  • The Museum’s Artist-in-Residence Katarina Marinic presents Oceans of Change, a moving video installation of portraits that brings together historical imagery with contemporary modes of image making. Make sure to have your portrait done here.
  • Library and Archives Canada and the Halifax Municipal Archives present An Archive of Place, an opportunity to use copies of archival images from their collections to record and share memories of the city’s buildings, parks and structures.
  • Throughout the night, DJ Dentata and DJ Douvet will intermingle hits of the Pier 21 era with today’s hits, highlighting the constant but ever-changing nature of pop music for their project The Beat Goes On.

Nocturne: Art at Night is a fall festival that happens throughout the streets of Halifax. Start your night at the Museum for free parking and view these amazing projects in our historic location.
