Art Night 2017

Jake & Dinos Chapman: The Misshapeness of Things to Come (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)

Compagnie Off: The Colour of Light

Our favourite free festival of spectacular arts is back.

Our picks:

  • 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

The V&A Exhibition Road Quarter

A week long celebration of the new courtyard area at the gorgeous Victoria and Albert Museum in South Kensington.

Highlights:

  • 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
