Here’s your chance to see some of the country’s best contemporary art talent at a ten-day FREE festival in south London. The 19th DEPTFORD X festival in – yep, you guessed it – Deptford is taking over numerous locations across SE8 in September.
Visitors will be able to enjoy live performances, video and installation works – in addition to fascinating artist talks, walking tours and learning activities.
Each year, five emerging artists are asked to produce provocative and thought-provoking new pieces for sites around the area. Highlights at 2018’s show include works from US artist Shawanda Corbett, Georgia Lucas-Going and David Steans. Glaswegian artist Laura Yuile will also be there. (Her work Tique is pictured above.)
Keep an eye on DEPTFORD X’s social media and, who knows, you might be able to say you saw their genius before they got famous!
