The provocative title is not simply a cheap trick like putting "SEX!!!!1!" across the top of a flyer to catch people's attention for carpet cleaning equipment. The One Night Stand With... series is quite literally one night with a specially commissioned artist at VINEspace, an inquisitive East London gallery in Bethnal Green

Each month, an artist is invited to present an exhibition for one night only. It is taken down in the morning so you've got to move quick to catch it. The temporal, transitory, 'blink and you'll miss it', can't leave it until next week feel to these exhibitions lends a special edge to the contemporary, cutting edge work that have featured so far. Installations, sculpture, performance, video and photography have all featured. This month, it is artist Sara Preibsch who will take over the project space with her video installation Late Birds.

The One Night Stand With... series coincides with First Thursdays, the Time Out programme across East London for each first Thursday of the month. Over 80 participating organisations stay open until 9pm, free of charge. As East London is saturated with galleries and art spaces, you can imagine it's a busy night and those with good stamina, comfortable shoes and a keen urge to see as much as possible in one night after work would do well to prepare for them. Make sure you zip by VINEspace - or miss your one night only chance.

One Night Stand With... Sarah Preibsch at VINEspace, Vyner Street, Bethnal Green, Thursday 6 December only - more info here. Part of First Thursdays, more info here.
