51zero/voyager 2018 @ Whitstable Biennale Saturday 2nd June
DECREATION – Touring programme
You are invited to a large-scale, outdoor screening of artists’ films and video projected on the exterior wall of the pub, facing the seafront. The programme will run from sunset on the 2nd June.
Many of the participating artists have taken part in international art Biennials, and will be showcased alongside emerging talent selected from open calls and students from the University of Kent School of Music and Fine Art.
The selection of works is from DECREATION – the 2017 edition of 51zero international festival of moving image and digital arts.
