Vivid Projects launches a new space in Digbeth, Birmingham

Date uploaded: February 6, 2013

Vivid Projects launches a new space in Digbeth, Birmingham on Friday 22nd February 2013.

This new agency led by the curatorial team behind VIVID which ran a seven year programme in Digbeth from 2005 - 2012 has been awarded a crucial grant from Arts Council England to boost a two year programme of work in Birmingham.

The opening multi-media season 33 REVOLUTIONS will be a dynamic and sometimes challenging 8-month programme that asks the question; can art and culture be a catalyst for social change? Thought provoking encounters between new works and archive from 1960s to the present will address the ways in which filmmakers and artists from a diverse range of cultural situations and societies have protested.

33 REVOLUTIONS runs from February - September 2013 and takes the audience on a journey through film, print, performance and song, celebrating personal acts of protest and resistance from the dance floors of 70s NYC to the anti-institutional spirit of 1960s - 70s Britain right up to the simmering Arab Spring and Occupy!

33 REVOLUTIONS launches at 7pm, Friday 22nd February 2013 with Revolution 01, ‘Ladies and Gentlemen, How Long Will They Last?', a new commission by artist Justin Wiggan.
