INTERFACE: Hastings, 26th August – 2nd October 2011

Date uploaded: August 22, 2011

26 August – 2 October 2011

INTERFACE is a cross-border initiative featuring artists from the UK, France and Belgium who are creating temporary projects for the twin towns of Hastings and Oudenaarde to mark the 20th anniversary of the formal twinning partnership between the two towns. The event is also an integral part of the visual arts programme within Coastal Currents, Hastings Borough Council's annual arts festival (27th August-30th September 2011).

INTERFACE focuses on new works and re-interpretations through performance, sound, moving image, installation, painting, photography and sculptural interventions. All the artists are working in unfamiliar territories and through their actions are proposing new 
interpretations of local environments and raising questions about the way spaces are negotiated. As an artists' collaboration, INTERFACE aims to animate the public space, encourage participation and change the perception of the familiar. It also encourages critical dialogue and on-going partnerships between the artists.
