Art is taking over the capital this weekend (1-2 July 2017) with installations galore for Art Night, Greenwich and Docklands International Festival and Reveal at the V&A.
Check out our hot tips to avoid the try hards and get arty this weekend!
Art Night 2017
An international smorgasbord (our favourite word) of arty goings on awaits the adventurous on 1 July (until 4am on 2 July) in East London.
Here are our art stars:
- The Misshapeness of Things to Come (2017) is a new video work by bad boy brothers Jake and Dinos Chapman.
- Go inside the gorgeous Masonic temple at the Andaz Hotel to see Mental Metal² (2017) by Lindsay Seers.
- See one of Robert Montgomery’s legendary fire poems Money is Superstition being lit to launch a new exhibition Triumph at Gallery46.

Greenwich + Docklands International Festival (GDIF)
Our favourite free festival of spectacular arts is back.
- Dancing City (Sat 1 July 2017): The soulless surroundings of Canary Wharf come alive with free dance and performance.
- Rear View (until Sun 2 July 2017): We went on this open backed double decker with a difference for a theatrical ride unlike any other. We had a great time getting lost in mesmerising music and poetry in the unexpectedly magical streets of Eltham.
- The Colour of Light (Sat 8 July 2017): Join a promenade performance that celebrates inclusivity and openheartedness set to an epic soundtrack by composer Shri Sriram.
Reveal at V&A
A week long celebration of the new courtyard area at the gorgeous Victoria and Albert Museum in South Kensington.
- Boiler Room teams up with V&A Friday Late for a free night of music, live performance, installations, original commissions & collaborations, visual culture and design. Look out for our favourite all female choir Deep Throat

I am Joint Editor at To Do List. I like free, cheap & offbeat London, especially: cabaret, art, theatre, pop-ups, eating out, quirky films, museums, day trips, social enterprise & much more.
