Working in conjunction with Haunted, Up All Night explores how artists have depicted the night and the dark in their work over the past 500 years.

Drawing upon the CRMA’s own collection, a wide variety of artists in all media will be included in this unique slice through the collection. The dark, filled with mystery, has been a long-lived theme in art and manifests itself differently in the hands of different artists. This exploration will not only investigate the different approaches artists have taken but also the preconceived notions and ideas about the night and the dark.
