Part of Art Night 2019, Barbara Kruger presents her first large-scale outdoor commission in 15 years in the UK, questioning its viewers about consumerism, individual autonomy, desire and power.

19:00 - 03:00.

Barbara Kruger is known for her combination of type and both still as well as moving image that conveys a direct cultural critique. Her work often examines stereotypes, the behaviours of consumerism as well as less obvious mechanisms of power that operate within contemporary society. Often displayed in public spaces her work has appeared on billboards, busses, cards, posters and in public parks and train station platforms, occupying the commercial spaces she is critiquing.

Art Night is London’s largest free contemporary art festival. Each year the festival partners with a leading cultural institution and/or independent curator, focusing on a different area of London to explore its distinctive identity, culture and architecture through various forms of art.

Art Night 2019 is curated by Helen Nisbet and takes place in Walthamstow and King’s Cross on 22 June with a small selection of projects open for the Family Trail on 23 June. The Art Night Open is a selection of over 40 independently curated projects selected through an open call.
