This summer Art Night will deliver its first full iteration in a city outside London. On the evening of Saturday 24 June from 7pm until late, ten major commissions by internationally significant artists and more emergent artists will be presented in civic and public spaces across Dundee.
The commissions will comprise ambitious live events, installations, sound, performance and film.
