Art Night: Expanding the City's Boundaries - Enora Robin, Louise Chignac and Kathy Noble



Art Night publication: Expanding the City’s Boundaries is a collection of essays from leading curators, urbanists, writers, art historians and sociologists reflecting on the meaning of Art Night and its role in a city like London. It critically explores the potential of contemporary arts for reshaping and reassessing our urban environments. It aims to be all at once an archive, a chronicle and a nocturnal journey across London. For this first volume, the contributors have been looking at the various ways in which Art Night redefines the physical, mental and temporal boundaries of the multiple spaces we inhabit – be that the boundaries of our minds and bodies, or those of our homes, city, or even our culture(s).
