Art Night 2017 will see London’s East End transformed with free art, performance and music by some of the world’s leading artists for the night of Saturday 1 July 2017.


Art Night is a free contemporary arts festival that puts art into extraordinary locations around London for one night a year. 

Art Night 2017 presents 13 projects by 11 artists in 13 venues across East London. The line-up includes Jake and Dinos Chapman animating a vacant warehouse at London Dock, guided meditation with Ian Whittlesea in the Bascule Chamber of Tower Bridge, and Melanie Manchot invites the public to join a mass dance class hosted in Exchange Square at Broadgate. Art Night 2017 is a collaboration with the Whitechapel Gallery and curated by independent curator and writer Fatoş Üstek. The festival is generously supported by international auction house Phillips.  

In addition, the Associate Program presents a huge selection of screenings, exhibitions, performances, installations, music concerts and more from London-based organisations, curators and galleries which are taking place alongside the curated trail.
