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.
This year, Art Night heads south of the river for the first time: the 2018 trail will transform the Thames riverbank between the South Bank and Battersea Power Station, via Vauxhall and Nine Elms, taking place in iconic and off-the-beaten-track venues. Ralph Rugoff and the Hayward Gallery team have curated projects by 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 in the festival responding to the 2018 curatorial themes and cultural trail.
Leake Street Arches are delighted to be hosting seven artists for Art Night Open:
We look forward to welcoming visitors to this free and truly unique event on Saturday!
