Dundee is hosting the first full iteration outside London of a one-night festival of contemporary art – Art Night.

Described by Art Night director Helen Nisbet as ‘the best house party you’ve ever been to’, the festival premieres ten new commissions by a range of artists, including Emma Hart, Maria Fusco, Margaret Salmon, Lucy McKenzie and Turner Prize-shortlisted artists Heather Phillipson and Tai Shani.

Not content to remain in art galleries (though it will occupy spaces like DCA, Cooper Gallery and V&A Dundee), Art Night ranges across the city, including Arthurstone Library and Baxter Park Pavilion, with performances and film screenings on HMS Unicorn, and musician Nabihah Iqbal’s ‘musical takeover’ of RSS Discovery (pictured). In all, the event celebrates the way the city has embraced contemporary art as an element of its regeneration.
