Nuit des images

In 2024, the Nuit des images makes its comeback with a new playground: the Plateforme 10 arts district. The venue changes, but the DNA remains! An essential part of Lausanne's cultural landscape, the event launched over thirty years ago by the museum has a tradition of celebrating photography in a variety of forms.

Playing with the building, the event is urban and festive: XXL projections on the facades; creative activities; music on the esplanade and original exhibitions.

The Nuit des images brings together audiences of all ages, from the well-informed to the curious, from image connoisseurs to image lovers, in a convivial summer atmosphere. Swiss and international artists of all generations are invited for the occasion.
