After two years of snowballing success, Chrom-Art – directed by our very own Lead Designer Jacinto Caetano – is pleased to announce the upcoming third Edition of #TRIBE17. The festival sets to promote talented emerging and undiscovered artists, giving them a unique platform to exhibit in Central London, in many cases for the first time ever.
The energy-fuelled show features over 200 international and UK-based artists from the world of contemporary art, music, and performance. It’s a family friendly ‘living exhibition’ encouraging cross-disciplinary creative collaboration and offers free access to all the activities and experiences. Artists come to London from over 20 different countries including Brazil, Russia, USA and Japan.
Conceived as an immersive multicultural festival engaging a diversity of art forms including 2D and 3D art works, virtual reality experiences, digital art, installations, short film, concerts and performances, #TRIBE17 will be held this year at OXO Bargehouse, a distinctive Central London landmark boasting 15,000 sq ft of warehouse space over five floors.
On the evening of Saturday October 14th don’t miss the ‘Love in the City’ Concert, an open-air performance by Orchestra of the City with synaesthetic projections by 2015 LUMEN prize finalist David Moraton. Following this year’s festival ‘Love’ theme, Orchestra of the City, London’s leading non-professional ensemble presents a programme that incorporates some of the greatest musico-dramatic works about love, led by musical director Chris Hopkins. The immersive nature of this performance is designed for most people to stand and move freely around the orchestra members.
And for the youngest, they have prepared a wide array of artists-led free ‘walk-in’ children’s workshops to explore multiple creative fields from sketching to digital art, with materials kindly donated by GreatArt, running on Saturday and Sunday morning and afternoon.
