On 1st July 2017, I went to the Art Night East London;
a multiple site specific art installation
festival bringing artwork from
well known household names to open previously inaccessible spaces in the East End.
Phillips was the main sponsor of the event, with other art scene suppliers advertising, generating revenue through sales of the Art Night guide.
The event was on for one day and night only, with a small number of venues charging whereas the majority were free. Because of the unusual space settings which have traditionally been off the limits, the event brought back the question, which has for years been discussed by art critics, student and professionals alike:
At which point does art stop being art to become a consumed product?
