Nocturnal Creatures brings together performance, video, sculpture and sound in the heart of the East End for a new late-night contemporary arts festival on Saturday 21 July.
The exhibition features a diverse selection of 22 artists working in London and engaging with topical concerns; from the rapidly changing urban context, the environment, technology, gender and race to queer representation, human relations, activism and post-colonial histories.
This exhibition features 'killed negatives' by American photographers, which were systematically damaged in the 1930s and are shown for the first time in a UK institution.
Installation artist Katja Novitskova presents an immersive environment at the Whitechapel Gallery, offering an unsettling vision of the future.
