Art Night 2017

ART NIGHT TAKES OVER LONDON’S EAST END WITH ALL-NIGHT FESTIVAL

Art Night, one of the UK’s largest free arts festivals supported by international auction house Phillips, is taking over London’s East End with art, performance and music by some of the world’s leading artists on Saturday 1 July 2017 from 6pm to 4am.

Art Night is inspired by the international Nuit Blanche movement, first initiated in Paris in 2002. Art Night 2017 is a collaboration with Whitechapel Gallery, curated by Fatoş Üstek.

For one night only, internationally acclaimed artists have transformed unusual spaces across east London, from historic and iconic sites to secret locations and public areas.

The highlights include Jake and Dinos Chapman animating a vacant warehouse at London Dock, Ian Whittlesea leading guided meditation sessions in the Bascule Chamber of Tower Bridge, Melanie Manchot inviting the public to join a mass dance performance in Exchange Square, a new installation by Lindsay Seers in a hidden Masonic Temple next to Liverpool Street, and a one-off performance by Benedict Drew with a group of leading experimental musicians at Whitechapel Gallery.

With cultural venues, galleries and local businesses joining the Associate Programme, there are 60 additional events taking place on the night throughout the East End, making Art Night one of the largest free art festivals in the UK.

Highlights of the Associate Programme include Thomas More Square being transformed into an immersive utopian garden by Estela Oliva, a night of film screenings with Frieze Magazine at the new Curzon Aldgate cinema, a political poster campaign and workshop at Ace Hotel London called Time for Outrage!, an interactive installation by Candida Powell-Williams at Devonshire Square, and new virtual reality works by artists Christian Lemmerz and Paul McCarthy presented by Khora Contemporary at creative workspace Second Home – with music and cocktails until midnight.

The programme draws inspirations from the East End’s rich history and the cosmopolitan and creative environments of today. Many of the Festival’s commissions are site-specific works which respond directly to the area’s fascinating buildings and locations.

  • Melanie Manchot is inviting audiences to take part in a collective dance performance at Exchange Square, Broadgate, in collaboration with 10 dance schools from around the East End, each representing a different style, from Flamenco to Irish Dance and Argentine Tango.
  • A club night at Village Underground features artist Carsten Nicolai a.k.a. Alva Noto and other DJs in collaboration with Boiler Room.
  • A new video installation by Lindsay Seers and unannounced performances are taking over the ceremonial setting of the Grade-II listed Masonic Temple at Andaz London.
  • Korean artist Do Ho Suh is presenting a video installation that responds to the architecture of Christ Church, Spitalfields.
  • Turkish artist Güneş Terkol has worked with Middlesex Street Estate residents to create a new work exhibited in the windows of The Cass, London Metropolitan University, and a permanent mural for the Estate.
  • Ian Whittlesea is inviting audiences to take part in an illuminated meditation inside Tower Bridge’s Bascule Chamber, inspiring them to see the world differently.

A group of Art Night Guides will be present at each site, guiding audiences and answering questions about the works and sites. The Art Night Guides programme is supported by Art Fund, drawing on their Student National Art Pass network.

Art Night is supported by public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England, with additional support provided by Bloomberg Philanthropies.

Justine Simons, Deputy Mayor for Culture and the Creative Industries, said: “Art Night 2017 is a great way to explore east London at night.  These free art installations by internationally renowned artists celebrate the dynamic creativity of the East End. I encourage locals and visitors to embrace the streets as their own and discover a new side to our city. There’s no doubt that is exciting festival contributes to the capital’s reputation as an international powerhouse for culture, and shows that London is open to creativity, talent and ideas from around the world.

For over a century, the Whitechapel Gallery has prided itself on bringing great art to the people of east London and beyond. We are delighted to be working with Art Night, and to be extending our programme outside the Gallery walls into unusual spaces.”

Cheyenne Westphal, Chairman, Phillips, said: Art Night is well on its way to becoming an established part of the contemporary art calendar in London, underscoring the city’s position as the creative capital of Europe and giving Londoners the chance to see and experience facets of their city in a new light.
