About Art Licks:
Launching on Thursday evening, the Art Licks Weekend is a new festival to present the work of pioneering young artists, curators, galleries and project spaces in London.
With over 70 galleries and project spaces taking part, presenting over 250 artists, an online project, performance programme, tours and a party, there will be plenty to keep us all busy.
These independent projects will be open to the public with special events and exhibitions of work by emerging artists and will encompass the most exciting artistic talent and innovative ideas in London; celebrating the creative energy of this young art scene. The festival will concentrate on those pockets of artistic activity in east and south London where some of the most interesting exhibitions, events, screenings and performances take place – including Bermondsey, Bethnal Green, Deptford, Elephant & Castle, Hackney, Hackney Wick, Haggerston and Peckham.
It is important that these initiatives and individuals are supported and their contribution to the diverse cultural landscape of London is celebrated as they form the future of its art scene. The Art Licks Weekend represents galleries and spaces that are risk-takers and have set themselves up on their own initiative often with little or no funding, delivering programmes that are exciting, relevant and innovative.
