Art Night 2018 in South Bank
Art Night is London’s largest free contemporary arts festival. Each year, the festival partners with a leading cultural institution and curator, focusing on a different area of London to explore its distinctive identity, culture and architecture through various forms of art.
We’re proud to say that Art Night is coming to South Bank this summer, which will be it’s first time south of the river. The trail will run from South Bank to Battersea Power Station, via Vauxhall and Nine Elms and will take place in a mixture of iconic and off-the-beaten-track venues.
This year, the Hayward Gallery are curating, bringing 12 internationally renowned artists to coincide with the institution's 50th anniversary.
Presented alongside these 12 projects, the Art Night Open* programme offers local galleries, organisations, independent artists and curators the opportunity to take part, with more than 50 included this year. Expect contemporary art; ranging from immersive multimedia installations and virtual reality to interactive experiences, special screenings and live music.
Here we present what’s happening in the South Bank part of the trail, and point you in the right direction to find more information if you wish to continue your nocturnal art journey.
