London’s annual festival, Art Night inspired by the International Nuit Blanche movement, returns to the East End on Saturday 1st July in a bid to incorporate artistic individuality into the excitement of a festival.

Now in its second year, Art Night is collaborating with the Whitechapel Gallery and will be curated by Fatos Ustek, exploring the history, culture and architecture of the East End.

Between the hours of 6pm and 5am, London is transformed into an extravagant production of art, performance and music that seeks to capture the essence of London’s culture and identity.

As a city, London is renowned for its amalgamation of eclectic styles in which Art Night delves into in an attempt to unite and solidify the people of London through the individuality of the evening.

A range of public areas around Westminster will act as a stage for productions such as Ian Whittlesea’s illuminated meditation session and Charles Avery’s fictional island created through the use of installations and objects.

Along with the various performances, the night will end with the Village Underground’s Club Night featuring Alva Noto and more DJs where people are invited to dance and embrace the music after a night of experiencing the different performers showcase their artistic flares.
