ArtEvict: Call for performers

ArtEvict: call for performers

ArtEvict is looking for the next wave of body/time based artists (emphasis on liveness) to platform their work at our next event.

ArtEvict is a monthly live art event that takes place in derelict buildings and squats around London, UK. Since its conception in November 2009 ArtEvict has established itself as an open yet critical platform for practicing and emergent artists to present new work with an emphasis on liveness.
Collaborators present their work to both artistic peers and the public for critique, discussion, re-evaluation and enjoyment.

ArtEvict is testament that alternative and multidisciplinary artistic endeavor can and does thrive even (or especially) without institutional resource(s).

If you would like to be involved please have a look at previous events/artists at: www.artevict.com and send a brief proposal and images of your work to: info@artevict.com
