g39 are really pleased to be playing a part in Art Night’s fifth edition, Nothing Compares 2 U taking place from 18 June to 18 July 2021, by supporting a billboard as part of the Guerrilla Girls project, The Male Graze.
Their biggest UK public commission to date, The Male Graze will be part of Art Night 2021. The commission includes a website, online gig and national series of billboards, including one in Cardiff, exploring bad behavior both historically and in the present day. The work will manifest in London, Eastbourne, Dundee, Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds, Cardiff, Warwick, Swansea and more. The billboards will be on display from 18 June to 18 July and in partnership with Art Night’s friends Compton Verney, Dundee Contemporary Arts, Glasgow Women’s Library, g39, Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, Grand Union, The Tetley and Towner Eastbourne. Art Night will also present this commission in two London sites in Shoreditch and London Bridge.
Transforming iconic and unexpected public spaces within London since 2016, Art Night 2021 - curated by Helen Nisbet (with the excellent Louise Hobson as associate curator) - will stretch 1000+ miles across Scotland, England and Wales, from North to South and East to West as well as even further digitally and physically for international audiences. For the first time Art Night will also take place for a month, allowing audiences the opportunity to access commissions, performances and interventions in rural locales, towns and cities as well as from home.
Not only this, but just up the road our friends at Peak will be a screening a programme of Alberta Whittle’s films in Abergavenny train station, Wales in partnership with KLA ART produced by 32° East in Uganda.
“We’re excited to collaborate with Art Night and Transport for Wales to present film works by Barbadian-Scottish artist Alberta Whittle at Platfform 2, new project spaces at Abergavenny Railway Station in the Welsh Borders.” Melissa Appleton, Creative Director, Peak
