ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Featuring work by artists such as Cindy Sherman, Ed Ruscha, Bill Armstrong, and David Lynch, the exhibition examines how key noir elements—stark lighting and shadows, moody characters, “hard-boiled” language, and fragmented narratives—have infiltrated contemporary film and television, graphic novels, children’s books, fashion advertising, video games, and fine art.
Enter even deeper into the world of noir through interactive gallery activities. Write your own noir story, don the accessories of a femme fatale or private detective, and play noir-inspired games such as Noir Escape and Third Eye Crime.
