Sculpture in the City's Programme for Whitechapel Gallery's Nocturnal Creatures

Sculpture in the City is once again an associate programme partner for Whitechapel Gallery’s annual contemporary arts festival, Nocturnal Creatures. Each summer for one night only, a host of extraordinary east-end spaces are transformed by an exciting programme of installations, performances, music, film and culinary experiences.

In partnership with Whitechapel Gallery since the festival’s first iteration in 2018, Sculpture in the City activates artwork locations in the City Cluster through a series of interactive workshops, sound installations, performances, talks, and tours.

For the 2021 iteration of Nocturnal Creatures, the 10th Edition of Sculpture in the City will be celebrated through an exciting programme of events set to take place on Saturday 17th July 2021, from 6-11pm and will feature Oliver Bragg‘s From Seed to Sculpture, Laura Arminda Kingsley‘s Murmurs of the Deep, a participatory Mindful Meditation by Almuth Tebbenhoff, plus performances by Isabella Martin, Jun T. Lai and Rosanne Robertson.

There will also be a Q&A with Jake Elwes hosted by journalist Tabish Khan (Visual Arts Editor, Londonist) along with a number of tours around the 10th Edition of Sculpture in the City, including an Art and Architecture tour led by David Rosenberg.

Sculpture in the City’s 10th Edition multimedia guide on Bloomberg Connects will also be premiered during Nocturnal Creatures, bringing the sculptures to life with a self-guided audio tour with sound clips from the artists.
