Art Licks Weekend: A unique festival launches for the emerging London art scene

LONDON.- Launching this year, the Art Licks Weekend 2013 will be a three-day event for which young galleries, not-for-profit projects, artist-run spaces and independent curatorial projects will be open to the public with special events and exhibitions of work by emerging artists.

With over 70 participating spaces showcasing 250 artists, the Art Licks Weekend is a unique event that 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, Hackney, Hackney Wick and Peckham.

The dominant picture of the capital’s creative sector does not represent the wealth of projects happening amongst younger artists and curators in spaces outside of central London. Art Licks launched in 2010 and has since grown to provide an essential platform and voice for the lesser-known and under-represented activities that form the grassroots of visual culture in London.

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 such 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.

Galleries, spaces and projects include: 38b, Almanac Projects, Alt MFA, Banner Repeater, FoodFace, Inland Studios, Legion TV, Pangaea Sculptors Centre, PlazaPlaza, Public Assembly, Rowing Projects, Superlative TV, The Garage Project, The Interview Room, Twelve Around One, Vulpes Vulpes, xero, kline & coma

Artists include: Andrea Francke, Jack Strange, Katie Schwab, Lawrence Lek, Lucy Beech, Martin John Callanan, Nicky Deeley, Richard Sides, Sam Zealey, Samara Scott, Sarah Kate Wilson, Simon Linington & William Mackrell, Sophie Cundale, Toby Huddlestone, Tom Railton
