You can keep your stuffy museums with their boring opening hours and waistcoated invigilators. What is this, 1918? No way, bozo, it’s 2018, and the people want something new, something… late. That’s what Art Night is here for. Now in its third year, Art Night is moving south of the river, starting on the South Bank, heading through Vauxhall and ending up at Battersea, with a full programme of events, installations and late-night gallery openings running from 6pm to 6am. Curated alongside the Hayward Gallery, the main programme is full of incredible highlights. Want to see an installation of 1,600 bricks by Bosco Sadi on the South Bank? A new, permanent work on the Albert Embankment by Random International, the people who did ‘Rain Room’? All-night dance performances by Studio Wayne McGregor? An entire evening of art film screenings at Battersea Power Station? Well, you can, alongside the chance to visit Newport Street Gallery, The Sunday Painter and Gasworks until late into the night. Oh, and it’s all free. Overdose on Pro-Plus, mainline some Red Bull, this is the perfect cultural event for all you 24-hour arty people.
Art Night takes place across various venues on Sat Jul 7. For full details, head to 2018.artnight.london.
