Celebrate Vivid Sydney 2018

With free late night entry at Museum of Sydney on Saturdays during Vivid Sydney!

From 25 May until 16 June, Museum of Sydney will host a stunning light installation as part of Vivid Sydney, the largest festival of light, music and ideas in the world.


Closer by ANL Design artist’s Lawrence Liang (Australia) / Anson Li (Australia) is a compelling comment on human connection and social interaction in the digital age.

Located on the Museum of Sydney forecourt, the installation is constructed as a series of 30 interconnected translucent cubes. Visitors are invited to enter and discover that the interior is a maze, where shadowy silhouettes are seen through walls and the experience is of isolation and disorientation.
