ART ATTACK: Art Night, GDIF & Reveal at V&A
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!
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.
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.
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
