In 2023, internationally renowned contemporary art festival Art Night will deliver its first full iteration in a city outside London – in Dundee. In June 2023, over one packed weekend, organisers will present ten major new commissions in civic spaces across the city by internationally significant and emerging artists. The free festival will be brought to Dundee in partnership with Dundee Contemporary Arts (DCA). The scheduled date is the evening of the 24th of June 2023 and will be free to attend.
The commissions will comprise ambitious live events, installations and performances and be presented in well known Dundee locations, bringing to audiences and participants world-class cultural opportunities in the city.
Art Night will also collaborate with V&A Dundee; Creative Dundee; NEoN Digital Arts; Cooper Gallery, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design (DJCAD) at the University of Dundee; GENERATORprojects; Dundee City Council and Hospitalfield, Arbroath.
Art Night has delivered four editions of the festival in London (2016-2019) in collaboration with major partners and one edition took place across the UK and online (2021). The Dundee festival will be the first time a full festival has taken place in a city outside London!
