The 2017 Convergence Festival is on at venues across London, running March 21 to 25.
The event brings together an interdisciplinary set of practices to create a dialogue around performance and technology, and is divided into three sections: Live Music, Visual Arts and Sessions.
The Live Music events will take place throughout the week at various locations in the city, including some notable performances by Yves Tumor who will present a “visceral live / art performance” on March 25 at Electric Brixton for Jacques Green’s curated Closing Party, as well as Actress on March 24 at Village Underground, among many others.
The Visual Arts section has partnered with Carroll/Fletcher, and features a public installation ‘Render Search’ by James Bridle at London’s Great Eastern Wall Gallery, running March 21 to April 3, and Constant Dullaart‘s solo exhibition The European Classes at London’s Village Underground Gallery, March 21 -26.
