Art Night is a free annual contemporary arts festival that transforms London for one unforgettable night, presenting acclaimed international art in unusual locations across the city.
Art Night 2018’s trail is its most ambitious yet, running along the Thames from Southbank Centre through Nine Elms to Battersea. The festival is curated by Hayward Gallery, to celebrate the renowned institution’s reopening and to coincide with its 50-year anniversary.
New commissions and work premiering in the UK by leading contemporary artists is presented across a dozen exceptional historic sites, iconic landmarks, secret venues and public spaces around Southbank Centre, Vauxhall, Nine Elms and Battersea, including Hayward Gallery itself.
Art Night is generously supported by international auction house Phillips for the third year running.
