The Deptford X Festival is on at venues across South London, opening September 22 and running to October 1.
The theme of the 10-day program is titled ‘Platform,’ featuring five emerging artists who this year include Evan Ifekoya, Project O, Sam Austen, Sisters From Another Mister and Tom Ireland. Nominated by a panel of artists, curators and writers, each participant will produce new work for an outdoor installation at sites around the English capital’s district of Deptford. There will also be a special project by D.A.T.A. (Deptford Anarchist Tapestry Association), where they will confront displacement and dislocation through the famous Deptford symbol of the anchor.
There will also be a number of tours, artists talks and fringe exhibitions running, including The Ambient Intelligence group exhibition at Enclave, with work by Joey Holder, Anna Mikkola and Jenna Sutela, as well as Goldsmiths Open Studios.
