Final line-up announced for Nocturnal Creatures, Whitechapel Gallery’s inaugural late-night contemporary arts festival taking place Saturday 21 July
This exhibition presents extraordinarily crafted objects from the Loudon Collection, selected and animated by visual artist Salvatore Arancio (b. 1974).
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.
