18 June - 18 July 2021
Art Night celebrated its fifth edition by taking place in locations across the United Kingdom for the first time and we were delighted to be part of it by bringing work by renowned artist collective Guerrilla Girls to Dundee.
For Art Night 2021 the Guerrilla Girls presented The Male Graze, their largest public commission in the UK to date. The Male Graze explored bad male behaviour focussing on, but not limited to, explorations of British artists and British collections. The work manifested as a website, a live gig and a national series of billboards realised in partnership with galleries and institutions across the country, including a billboard in Dundee.
The billboards were on display from Fri 18 June to Sun 18 July and in partnership with Art Night’s friends Compton Verney, Dundee Contemporary Arts, Glasgow Women’s Library, g39, Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, Grand Union, The Tetley and Towner Eastbourne. Art Night also presented this commission in two London sites in Shoreditch and London Bridge.
The Dundee billboard was located at 2 Forfar Road, Dundee, DD4 7AR.
Commissioned by Art Night and Somerset House.
