Nocturnal Creatures

Nocturnal Creatures Whitechapel Gallery

Nocturnal Creatures is a new, free festival, for one night only.  It brings together performance, video, sculpture and sound.

Cultural and historic venues within walking distance of Whitechapel Gallery are transformed, opening their doors late into the night. Highlights include a range of immersive installations, visuals, performances and sound elements from The London Open 2018 artists.

In association with Sculpture in the City, artist-led tours of artworks around the East End will also take place. New audio compositions will be made accessible for the first time as part of the launch of Sculpture in the City x Musicity, linking music and architecture together as a new way of seeing and hearing the area. Situated around the city are 18 works from internationally renowned artists Marina Abramović, Tracey Emin, Sarah Lucas, Sean Scully and many more.

International project, Plantón Móvil, with Peruvian artist Lucia Monge, will create a ‘walking forest’ of plants and people moving together, giving shrubs, flowers and trees the opportunity to ‘walk’ down the streets and to claim their place in our public space.
