Museum Night 2013: Light on Van Gogh

Every year N8 (the Amsterdam Museum Art Foundation) opens Museum Night in a different museum, generally one with something special to celebrate. In 2013 there were no less than three museums with cause for celebration: the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and the Van Gogh Museum, all of whom had reopened on Museumplein. So the opening film Nachtlicht by Emmanuel Adjei and Marleen Özgür was shown simultaneously in the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum and the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. Nachtlicht takes audiences on an enchanting search for the ‘Night Light’ which haunts the three museums and lies concealed within the work of great Dutch masters.
