Birmingham Contemporary Art Forum is delighted to announce it will be hosting The Event’s third bi-annual visual art festival from 21 – 30 October 2011 from their galleries, studio spaces and empty buildings in various locations in and around Eastside, Birmingham’s creative quarter in Digbeth.
Central to The Event this year is Symposion, an evening of performance curated by Boris Ondrei?ka of Tranzit.org, with a line up of international artists, theorists and musicians responding to Symposion, a philosophical text by Plato, concerned with the genesis, purpose and nature of love. The themes in Symposion will be felt throughout The Event and at the forefront of the festival’s intentions for each exhibition and event presented. Contributors include Jan Verwoert, Karl Holmqvist, Emily Roysdon and many more.
The Event’s programme includes works and projects from artists selected through an Open Commission including a series of events by Birmingham based artists BAZ, a film programme curated by Claire Craig and a presentation by performance artist Phillip Henderson.
Groups presenting works in The Event 2011 are: AAS, An Endless Supply, Companis, Crowd 6, Eastside Projects, Grand Union, The Lombard Method, SLICE and TROVE.
