Make sure your calendars are still marked: Art Night 2021 will take place from 18 June to 18 July 2021.
Art Night will celebrate its fifth edition by taking place in locations across the United Kingdom for the first time this summer.
Art Night 2021, curated by Helen Nisbet, will stretch 1000+ miles across Scotland, England and Wales. For the first time Art Night will also take place for a month, allowing audiences the opportunity to access commissions, performances and interventions in villages, towns and cities as well as from home.
A series of commissions will also unfold online as well as a public programme across the UK.
This programme includes a new Art Night commission by the Guerrilla Girls across the country titled The Male Graze – their largest public project in the UK to date which explores bad male behaviour both historically and in the present day. The work will manifest as a series of billboards including in London, Eastbourne, Dundee, Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds, Cardiff, Warwick, Swansea and more. The commission also includes a website, and online gig.
The Art Night 2021 artists are:
Imran Peretta & Paul Purgas,
and Alberta Whittle.
Festival events are all free to attend and will take place outdoors, online and have been developed to be COVID-friendly for exhibiting artists and visiting audiences.
Whilst we are working really hard to deliver the festival, we are still fundraising. We will be launching a crowdfunding campaign on Art Happens with Art Fund this month, with a lot of exciting artist rewards.
We are looking forward to seeing you there!
