18 Folgate St, London E1 6BX

6pm–12am

Alongside their new video installation at London Dock, Jake and Dinos Chapman have made a subtle intervention in Dennis Severs’ House. Bringing together an eclectic style that spans over three centuries, the interior feels as though its inhabitants have just left, with signs of family life scattered throughout the property, supporting the fictional narrative that this is the home of a Huguenot family. A selection of paintings is inserted into the curious furnishings of the house. These works hang in place of some of the original oil paintings adding a twisted feeling to the ornate decor.

A project kindly hosted by Dennis Severs’ House. Thanks to Felicity Waley-Cohen for their generous support in loaning works

Güneş Terkol has been commissioned to create a new work following a one-month residency in London. Her socially engaged practice involves groups of committed participants to collaborate with her. For Art Night, Terkol worked with residents of Middlesex Street Estate, one of the two remaining housing estates in the City of London, to produce a large-scale banner, through a series of sewing workshops. The banner displays the residents’ hopes, dreams and their relationship to the neighbourhood layered onto a backdrop designed
by Terkol. It is installed in the window of The Cass, London Metropolitan University, available for the public to view
for one night only.

Additionally, a permanent mural inspired by this banner has been made for Middlesex Street Estate’s external wall, unveiled on Art Night, it is supported by a procession through the streets of the East End.

The mural is made in association with Aldgate Community Events, supported by the City of London Corporation. The banner is kindly hosted by The Cass, London Metropolitan University.

Falling and Walking (phhhhhhhhhhh phossshhhhh crrhhhhzzz mn huaooogh) (2017)

New commission
Installation combining sound, light and sculpture

Nicholls & Clarke Showrooms
3 Shoreditch High Street, London E1 6PG

6pm–4am

Please note you will be asked to remove your shoes before entering the installation

Anne Hardy presents a new large scale FIELD work– an immersive installation that incorporates sculptural structures, objects, colour, light, and audio in the former headquarters of the Nicholls & Clarke Showrooms. For Hardy, the FIELD is a physical and psychological space of enquiry, an emotive space and a landscape that we enter into. Hardy has collected sounds from the vicinity of the building, often using objects found on the street to generate noises in the locations where she finds them – sliding a steel rod against a metal fence, or dropping found pieces of concrete into a hole. Composed into an abstract score the resulting audio is coupled with a delicate assembly of objects, light and structures which is choreographed around the space. The balance and sensuality of these components create a familiar yet disorienting environment.

A co-commission by Art Night and Contemporary Art Society. The work will subsequently be donated to Leeds Art Gallery.

New commission
Multimedia installation and live performance

Whitechapel Gallery
77-82 Whitechapel High St, London E1 7QX

6pm–2am: Opening times
6pm–11.30pm: Performance times

Benedict Drew turns his major multi-media installation at Whitechapel Gallery into a musical score, collaborating with a group of leading experimental musicians on a live, durational improvisation. Taking their cues from the visuals on the screens, the musicians build from the droning sounds
of minimalist and US West Coast synthesizer music, to electro-acoustic free-improvisation.
By producing sounds of increasing intensity, the performers transport the viewer to a reflective
or ecstatic space.

Performance with:

Paul Abbott, drums
Dawn Bothwell, electronics
Nicholas Brooks, electronics and percussion
David Burrows, electronics
Tom Chant, saxophone
Angharad Davies, violin
Benedict Drew, electronics
Aine O’Dwyer, harp

& various east London locations

Cocktail bar & performers: 6pm–2am
Posters & Sculptures: 6pm–4am

Charles Avery brings components of his imaginary Island to east London. The Islanders’ main city, Onomatopoeia, appears at St. Katharine Docks as part of a large-scale installation incorporating sculpture, drawings and posters. Significant features of the Island, such as trees and gods
are displayed for one night only, as well as its main trade: eel hunting. A cocktail bar much loved
by the Islanders, The Egg Eating Egret, operates from the premises of the White Mulberries café
all night, serving custom-made egg cocktails to the public, while locals from the Island
may appear unannounced. Promotional posters for the Eternal Dialectic, the leading cultural
event of Onomatopoeia, are also brought to the streets of the East End through a flyposting campaign.

A project supported by St. Katharine Docks and Elephant Gin.

Further thanks to White Mulberries, Vital Arts and Barts Health NHS Trust

Christ Church Spitalfields
Commercial Street, London E1 6LY

6pm–4am

Do Ho Suh presents a video installation made of previous works in response to the architecture
of Christ Church Spitalfields, shown on a loop. The videos put forward the idea of transience
as both a sustained emotional state and an act of self-discovery. The works show dwellings
in which Suh, his family, friends and team resided, filmed as if they were located in a single
apartment block that continuously varies in style and structure. The video installation is placed
in the central space of the church’s nave, where a variety of architectural details are evident,
from Gothic to Classic architecture, to Venetian and Victorian stained glass windows
and Tuscan columns.

A project co-produced with KCCUK, with venue support from Christ Church Spitalfields.

Ian Whittlesea

Becoming Invisible (2017)

Site-specific adaptation of an ongoing project
Immersive light and sound installation

Entrance at the signposted meeting point on the south-east side
Tower Bridge Road, London SE1 2UP

Entry strictly pre-booked only.
Check back soon, Registration is open until midnight, June 29.

6pm–2am, every 40 minutes
Duration: 35 Minutes
Language: English

Ian Whittlesea invites the audience to take part in an illuminated meditation in the Bascule Chamber, located inside Tower Bridge. His ongoing work Becoming Invisible is adapted to the rarely accessed cavernous space. This experiential and performative audio installation is accompanied by a light show ranging from total darkness to the most intense light imaginable. The audience, in groups of 50,
is guided down into the chamber by the voice of hypnotherapist Ruth Sabrosa, alongside the sound
of rhythmic breathing and visualisation cues. Once in the Chamber the participants are asked
to reflect on the colour spectrum and finally to step into a white cloud, perhaps allowing them
to become permanently invisible.

A project supported by Art Night’s Patron Circle 2017, kindly hosted by Tower Bridge.

Please note: Strobe lights are used throughout the duration of the installation and performance.

6pm–4am: Installation
10pm–11pm: Live music

For Art Night Jake and Dinos Chapman present a brand new piece, The Misshapeness of Things
to Come,
in a listed warehouse at London Dock. Employing free associative writing techniques,
the Chapman Brothers have been building poems through a cumulation of inserted ideas,
in response to the lines of one another. This new commission centres on a previously unpublished
epic poem which manifests as a film, juxtaposing the spoken verse with flashing imagery corresponding to the words. The effect is a fast-paced visual representation of the poem, intended
to overwhelm. Jake Chapman and his band Funhole will perform a special live performance
on the night, with an audience of eyeless mannequins dressed in the clothes of the dead,
eyeballs in their hands, ever present and watching.
A project supported by St George at London Dock.

A project supported by St George, currently developing London Dock.

Dennis Severs’ House
18 Folgate St, London E1 6BX

6pm–12am

Alongside their new video installation at London Dock, Jake and Dinos Chapman have subtly intervened with the period artworks at Dennis Severs’ House. The location is specifically selected to comply with the timeless nature of the Chapman’s body of practice. Decorated from head to toe in an eclectic style that spans over three centuries, the interior is charged with traces of active living in the house, unfolding the narrative of a resident Huguenot family and their ways of being during their temporary absence. A selection of works, spanning the last decade of Chapman’s prolific production, is inserted into the curious furnishings of the house. These works hang in place of some of the original oil paintings adding a twisted, sinister feeling to the ornate decor.

Play Station (2017)

New commission
Virtual reality installation

The White Chapel Building
10 Whitechapel High St, London E1 8DX

6pm–4am

Virtual Reality headsets are used at your own risk. VR is not recommended for people who are pregnant, have high blood pressure, heart condition, or suffer from motion sickness, seizures or epilepsy.

Lawrence Lek invites audiences to explore the contradictions of a future post-work society with
a new virtual reality video game. Set in 2037, Play Station takes place in a science fiction version
of the White Chapel Building, transformed into the London headquarters of a mysterious technology start-up known as Farsight. A world leader in digital automation, Farsight trains employees
to outsource their jobs as much as possible, rewarding top performers with access to exclusive entertainment and e-holidays. Access to this virtual world is through a mandala-like installation
of VR headsets, video training guides, and voiceover tutorials, allowing the audience to participate
as players or observers. Housed in the cavernous atrium of the recently re-invented White Chapel Building, Play Station reflects on the continuously changing boundaries between workplace
and playground.

A co-commission by Art Night and Outset Young Patrons Circle.

Supported by Derwent London, developers of the White Chapel Building.

Video installation and performance

Masonic Temple, Andaz London
40 Liverpool St, London EC2M 7QN

6pm–4am: Video installation
Unannounced performances

Lindsay Seers presents a video installation in the ceremonial setting of the Masonic Temple at Andaz London, a Grade-II listed Temple that still functions as a meeting place for a number of masonic lodges. Responding to the 105-year-old ritualistic site, Seers focuses her work on the persona of Aleister Crowley, an English occultist, ceremonial magician, poet, painter, novelist, and mountaineer of the early 20th Century. At the time of the Temple’s inauguration in 1912, Crowley strongly criticised the loss of esoteric origin and value of freemasonry. Set against Christianity he developed his religion Thelema, founded on masonic principles, magic and ritual explorations of consciousness through sex. Seers channels this journey, with Michael Byrne and Francesca Dale embodying Thelema. Through projection, animation and sound, the installation brings together Crowley’s personas adding a visceral intensity to the experience.

Venue support from Andaz London Liverpool Street.

and Argentine Tango. The dancers parade through the streets of east London coming together
in Exchange Square, Broadgate where they dance side by side. Between 10pm – 1am, illuminated
and transformed into a temporary stage, the square is taken over by teachers from each school, offering different dance lessons to the public. The project encourages audiences to come and dance
in the square, to experience these vibrant rhythms and learn something new. When the lessons
are over the space becomes an open dance floor until the early hours of the morning, with playlists and headphones available via silent disco.

Dance (All Night, London) is a sequel to Manchot’s 2011 piece Dance (All Night, Paris) conceived
for Nuit Blanche and in both pieces she situates forms of dance as different languages and expressions of culture. In the aftermath of 1 July, Dance (All Night, London) will become a new video work comprising of footage of the dancers’ procession through the streets alongside the collective dance
in the square as it unfolds over the course of the night.

An Art Night commission acquired for the Arts Council Collection, made possible by Art Fund.

A project supported by British Land.

A night of sonic experimentation from leading artists specially curated by Boiler Room and Carsten Nicolai (Alva Noto) for Art Night 2017.

Carsten Nicolai aka Alva Noto: “Art and music always had
a close connection. Many artists have become musicians and many musicians are artists at the same time. This special night is run by artists who have always been working in both fields and have never been pinned down to one specific genre. So let’s forget about concepts and enjoy the sound.”

Special thanks to Absolut and Goethe-Institut London for their support of Art Night.

The Future is Certain; It’s the Past Which is Unpredictable

The Future is Certain; It’s the Past Which is Unpredictable at Calvert 22 Space

22 Calvert Avenue, London E2

6pm – 11pm

A group show on writing and rewriting history.

“The future is certain”, according to an old Soviet joke. “It’s the past which is unpredictable.” This exhibition reflects on the ways history is written and the inevitability with which the past reasserts itself in the future. Bringing together works from nine artist and collectives , The Future is Certain is an economy of ideas and artworks as well as historical facts and records that refuse to disappear on their own.

Participating artist and collectives: Felix Kalmenson, Jonas Mekas, (in video conversation with Johnston Sheard and Justė Kostikovaitė), Deimantas Narkevičius, Emily Newman, Rather Than Happiness, Jura Shust, Slavs and Tatars, Emilija, Škarnulytė, Juan Pablo Villegas.

In partnership with the Lithuanian Culture Institute.

Late-Night Opening at Kate MacGarry

Things That Soak You: Laura Aldridge, Rana Begum, Francis Uprtichard & Bethan Laura Wood at Kate MacGarry Gallery

27 Old Nichol St, London E2 7HR

6pm-12am

Aldrige’s work balances painting and sculpture, a state of stasis and mobility. She experiments with material, colour and form to investigate the physicality of a process. Begum’s work is characterized by the interplay of dense, industrial materials and the impression of weightlessness. She investigates how light and colour can affect form. Upritchard experiments with the theme of display, creating installations featuring archetypal figures, which draw on the gothic tradition as well as contemporary folk and psychedelia. Wood’s designs, spanning furniture, glass, jewellery and sculpture, are a riotous culmination of colour, humour and materiality. Her expansive palette and the flamboyant architecture of her structures are key to her artistic language

Special late-night opening for Art Night 2017.

My East Ballad: The One, The Teeth and The Circle at The RYDER
Presented by artist Rosana Antolí

19a Herald Street, London E2 6JT

6pm–12am (performance from 7pm–9pm)

The RYDER is pleased to present My East Ballad: The One, The Teeth and The Circle, a live performance by artist Rosana Antolí. Collaborating with experimental and psychedelic musicians Tomaga and art critic and performer Sarah Kent, the artist presents an abstract portrait of the everyday activities and rhythms of east London based on extensive research and reiterated interactions with people living in the area. Antolí’s practice aims to create alternative choreographies where repetition, narrative and gesture are used to explore our most intrinsic and unconscious movements. The utopian character is central to her practice, and consequently the absurdity and failure of these actions.

Monument to a Fishmonger at Division of Labour
Presented by artist Sam Curtis

13-16 Herald Street, London E2 6JT

6pm–12am (workshops at 7pm and 10pm, running time: 90 minutes)

Division of Labour hosts Monument to a Fishmonger by Sam Curtis, a memorial to an everyday worker, still alive and working hard on the Roman Road. To accompany the exhibition, Sam Curtis and Eleanor Morgan, two artists with a shared interest in fish invite you to a night of fish rubbing. Fish rubbing or ‘Gyotaku’ is a printing technique invented by Japanese fishermen to record the size of their catch. By inking the fish and printing it onto fine Japanese paper, the intricate markings and texture of the fish can be captured forever. The artists use edible squid ink to create prints, meaning that you can both print your fish and eat it. Art Night will also mark the opening of the DoL Print Department; a series of print workshops by invited artist groups and artists throughout the month of July.

6pm–12am

FieldWorks Gallery hosts Sol Bailey-Barker’s first solo exhibition. Bailey-Barker creates an immersive installation based in a converted railway arch and reveals the equation behind his sculptural process through a new series of tapestries in which ‘route objects’ are assembled, categorised and sewn onto canvas. Objects found in the artist’s childhood are displayed beside debris recently washed up on the banks of the River Thames. Certified antiques identified by The Museum of London allude to certain histories, yet the jumbled, declassified presentation and ‘fakes’ suggest other possibilities of history and the co-existence of the past, present and future. Drinks and BBQ is on offer.

Rather than documenting reality or aiming to provide objective narratives, the works focus on personal accounts and storytelling, exploring the fragility and diversity of everyday life in the city.

Library, Bishopsgate Institute, 230 Bishopsgate, London EC2M 4QH

6pm–12am (drop-in workshop/ first come, first served)

As part of Art Night, Bishopsgate Institute will be sharing the parts of its historic archives that look at London’s radical and rebellious past and inviting you to create your own call to action to turn your personal protest into a self-published piece of angry artwork. Visitors will be able to view the rich collection of visual protest and campaigning materials held in our Special Collections and Archives – from placards and posters to zines and pamphlets – and respond using scissors, glue and a photocopier. The event will encourage visitors to think about their own identity, and be inspired by the diverse source materials to create a zine of their own.

Dis/Obedient Women

Dis/Obedient Women at Kobi Nazrul Centre
Presented by curator Sari Patnaik

30 Hanbury Street, London E1 6QR

6pm–12am (free cupcakes for early birds)

The exhibition Dis/Obedient Women is inspired by the vibrant and colourful garments common in East End shopfronts. Through often humorous and poignant artworks that relate to items of clothing – such as saris and hijabs – this exhibition addresses social and cultural traditions and invites a questioning of larger issues: belonging, dislocation, personal identity, stereotypes, gender, hypocrisy and power structures, including the many constructs around the female body. Standing as a tribute to the East End, Dis/Obedient Women also celebrates the spirit of this community, an area widely recognised for its multiculturalism, experimentation and acceptance. Alongside the exhibition, visitors can partake in sari and hijab wrapping.

Self-Portrait in Sugar, films and videos by Chila Kumari Burman

Self-Portrait in Sugar at Brady Arts & Community Centre
Presented by artist Chila Kumari Burman and curator Sylwia Serafinowicz in collaboration with MAK

192–196 Hanbury Street, London E1 5HU

6pm–12am

Since the 1980s Chila Kumari Burman has played a crucial role in the emancipation of the image of an Asian woman. Burman breaks the stereotype of a submissive and motherly figure through subversion of the popular depictions of womanhood. Found images are often a starting point for her heavily embellished portraits where seductive silhouettes are confronted with bold verbal narrative, prints of the artist’s body and punk slogans. The screening, among other film and video works, includes Dada and the Punjabi Princess, her most recent moving image piece, a Punk and Pop collage of traditional Indian dance, kaleidoscopic landscapes and socially engaged narratives.

Project coincides with a solo show by Chila Kumari Burman, titled Self-Portrait in Sugar at MAK, Lighthouse Studios, 89a Shacklewell Lane, London E8 2EB

Presented by artist Yva Jung

16 Horner Square, London E1 6EW (entrance via Huguenot Gate from Commercial Street)

6–11pm

On the corner of a market place, a temporary street vendor will appear for one night. The artist will disguise herself as a seller while presenting her objects a collection of morning dew samples collected on Mondays throughout 2017. Exchanging goods for ephemeral actions (such as storytelling or singing), this project is seeking to trigger unpredictable accidents and create transient and intimate memories at the heart of an urban space. Using commerce as a form for our basic encounters, this project aims to explore the social and economical dimensions of the East End.

8–9.30pm

A durational performance piece drawing material and movement from East London’s historical rope working trade. The artists use their physical forms, rope as material and the environment, to create temporary architectures. These architectures become extensions of their bodies, in simultaneous tension and balance. The ongoing creation and dismantling of these temporary physical spaces explores the way in which we create and inhabit our surroundings.

6–11pm

The Whitechapel Bell Foundry is the oldest manufacturing business in the UK, founded in 1570. After the creation of thousands of bells, including the iconic Big Ben and the Liberty Bell, the business has been sold and manufacturing is moving away from the historic east London site. As a local business to the Bell Foundry, Visualise wanted to tell the story of the bell foundry’s final days and capture the casting of the last bell. Their documentary, titled The Final Bell, shot as 3D 360° video, provides future generations with a rich immersive visual experience of this truly unique and dying trade.

Presented by artist Marine Hardeman and MTArt

4 Fieldgate Street, London E1 1FG/Plumbers Row building, 32-34 Whitechapel Road, London E1 1DY

10pm–4am

Sewer drains are everyday elements that exist in urban spaces that we barely notice. The project of artist Marine Hardeman literally highlights what lies under our feet below the surface of the city. Hardeman does so by playing with the contrast of light and dark through a graphic play of light bursting through several horizontal and vertical installations from the sewer drains below. Sewer spotlights are central to the piece, which ignite independently to create a spatial performance. Hardeman’s innovative use of alternative spaces both enhances and responds to the urban environment we live in.

Cache at Devonshire Square
Presented by artist Candida Powell-Williams and Bosse & Baum

Central Courtyard, Devonshire Square, London EC2M 4YE
(entrance via New Street or Harrow Place)

6pm–12am

Candida Powell-Williams presents an interactive site-specific installation inside one of the square’s outdoor courtyards. Taking the history of Devonshire Square as a departure point, the artist borrows historical and absurd narratives, adding mythological, art historical and pop-culture references, folding these moments from the past into the present. The construction of the warehouses was started by the East India Trading Company in 1768 and continued into the 1820s. They stored raw silk, piece goods and textiles from Bengal. Drawing imagery from textiles once stored in the warehouses, Powell-Williams creates sculptural objects, that function as a platform for performance and interactive activities.

A project supported by Devonshire Square.

Orchestra of Rocks: Not a Rock Concert at St Olave Hart Street
Presented by artist Uta Kogelsberger in collaboration with Atau Tanaka, Dane Law (Adam Parkinson), Nathalia, Eleonora Oreggia, Tom Richards and Shelley Parker

8 Hart Street, London EC3R 7NB

6pm–12am

St Olave Church is transformed into an immersive environment of sculptural installation and sound. Free standing, simulated “rock-speakers” will each broadcast live mixes by on-site sound artists and DJs. Based on the recordings of individual raindrops captured with experimental recording techniques, these improvisations will create trance-like, rhythmic and ritualistic soundscapes hovering between abstraction and dance tracks. The work takes its cue from Kogelsberger’s previous video installation Playing the Cave, a playful evocation of ancient rituals, myth and man’s desire, often futile, to gain control over nature.

A project supported by the University of Newcastle and Goldsmiths.

The Garden of Virtual Utopias at Thomas More Square
Presented by curator Estela Oliva

Thomas More Square, London E1W 1YW

6pm–2am

Inspired by the work of Sir Thomas More, who coined the concept of ‘utopia’, the event transforms the square into an immersive space blending art and technology with the urban space. Works presented by artists LaTurbo Avedon, Jonathan Monaghan, Marija Bozinovska Jones/MBJ Wetware and Andreas Nicolas Fischer, among others, have been constructed in the virtual realm and are juxtaposed as physical works, illustrating how virtual simulations could become today’s desired utopian spaces. By experiencing the works of avatars, immersions in 3D worlds, live audiovisual performances as well as a virtual reality napping station for meditation, the exhibition aims to provide a space for inspiration, relaxation and reflection.
