Into the Night

The exhibition Into the Night explores the social and artistic role of nightclubs, cabarets and cafés from 1880 to the 1960s. These venues were breeding grounds for radical movements, where artists exchanged provocative ideas and introduced new forms of expression. Into the Night charts an alternative history of modern art, emphasising experimentation and highlighting the partnerships between artists, writers and musicians.

The exhibition is at the Barbican Art Gallery in London from 4 October 2019 to 19 January 2020 and at the Belvedere in Vienna from 14 February to 1 June 2020.
