Art Night

24 June 2023

7pm until late

Dundee hosted the UK’s all-night festival of contemporary art.

On 24 June 2023 Art Night presented 10 commissions by both local and internationally celebrated artists across civic and public spaces in Dundee. This was complemented by Inwith, a programme highlighting a cross section of Dundee’s expansive art and communities programming.

Upwards of 15,000 audience members joined us for ambitious live events, installations, sound, performance and film. The festival was free and open to all.
