Nocturnal Creatures


Sculpture in the City was once again an associate programme partner for Whitechapel Gallery’s free 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 dance and live art performances, workshops, participatory activities and sound installations.

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 2022 iteration of Nocturnal Creatures, the 11th edition of Sculpture in the City was celebrated through an exciting programme of free events on Saturday 23 July 2022, and featured performances Permanence by Emma Louise Moore, The Garden of Floating Words by Elisa Artesero, We by Emma Smith, The Picnic by Jocelyn McGregor, and audio installations An Orphaned Mixtape by Bram Ellens and Oasis by Pedro Pires.

There were also artwork tours around the 11th edition of Sculpture in the City, and the 11th edition multimedia guide on Bloomberg Connects was activated during the evening, bringing the sculptures to life through a self-guided audio tour with sound clips from the artists.
