UP AND RUNNING
Deptford X was officially launched last Friday and the festival is now up and running with over 50 exhibitions and events taking place in venues all over Deptford.
Our headline artists have hit town and these are exhibitions not to be missed.
Henna Nadeem’s work is up on Ha’Penny Hatch, Doug Jones’s exhibition can be seen at the Van Khan Gallery and The Hidden Noise has taken up residency at Gallop.
We are also delighted to welcome Dzine’s exhibition ‘Phenomenon’, which is on show at Bearspace.
The main event is the installation of Hew Locke’s Gold Standard on the outside of the Old Tidemill School, Frankham Street. The work is truly awe inspiring.
On behalf of our patrons, trustees, staff and participating artists, I would like to welcome you to Deptford X, London’s contemporary art festival.
This year the festival is taking place at the same time as the Olympic Games (27 July to 12 August) and sees the culmination of a year-long programme of work.
We have been working with our appointed lead artist-curators, Hew Locke and Indra Khanna, to produce a high-quality festival of contemporary visual art, and we are pleased to welcome Henna Nadeem, Dzine, Doug Jones and The Hidden Noise to Deptford X 2012.
Deptford X has been commissioned by the London Borough of Lewisham to produce three pieces of work: David Mach’s ‘Hell Bent’ sculpture will be displayed on Blackheath; Lewisham Council’s refuse trucks will be decorated with new work that has been created by students led by Bridget Lycett-Smith; and a sculpture from the Museum of Melancholy inspired by Olympic podiums will be exhibited in the Creekside Café.
This year the festival will include over 50 fringe projects, plus gallery exhibitions, open studios and numerous tours, events and performances, making Deptford X 2012 a truly inspiring programme.
Enjoy the festival and spread the word – Deptford X is here.
