Suzanne Treister's giant mural at Battersea Power Station to celebrate Art Night

For those of you who can't get enough of art, you'll be able to enjoy London’s largest free contemporary arts festival at one of the capital’s most iconic locations this weekend.

Battersea Power Station will host the Festival Square for this year’s Art Night from 7-8 July at Circus West Village with one of its central features being a giant 80-metre mural, created especially for the occasion by British artist Suzanne Treister.

Watercolours, from her Survivor project, will take centre stage at the annual all-night festival, which is this year co-curated by the Hayward Gallery and is coming south of the river for the first time in its history. The trail will run along the South Bank from Battersea Power Station to the Southbank Centre, transforming the area with performances, installations and pop-ups for all to enjoy.

Elsewhere, Marinella Senatore will lead a procession featuring community groups and performers starting from Battersea Power Station and continuing east along the trail to the South Bank. Royal warrant holder, Moyses Stevens, which is opening a boutique and flower school at Circus West Village later this year, will be hosting a flower buttonhole making workshop.

Meanwhile, The CoffeeWorks Project will be hosting a drop-in printmaking workshop with Portable Print Studio where you can create, print and take home a unique mono-screenprint inspired by the iconic Power Station. And the Village Hall will host a club night in collaboration with Lisson Gallery featuring a special screening of Hans Berg and Nathalie Djuberg’s Waterfall Variations and music sets by artists Hans Berg and Haroon Mirza.

Discover more events at Art Night runs from 7-8 July 2018.
