Seven Traces Contemporary Arts Festival

  • 17 October — 2 November 2014

Seven Traces is an annual nomadic contemporary arts festival with shows in different cities.
It consists of seven artists each year, and each year it might consist of different artists.
The festival focuses on public and site-specific art but is largely inclusive.
The festival is like a rhizome that sprouts in random places.

As human beings we leave our marks and footprints where we go, we strive to leave a legacy and a sense of our existence. Traces is symbolic of this desire to be remembered or simply acknowledged. If you wander deep through a forest you are struck by the thickness of the trees, the density of the environment surrounding you and the encompassing darkness, but if you look close enough you can see where animals have trodden the earth, where rain has worn away at rocks or where plants have sprouted from the ground.

In a time where culture can be seen as dense and as tangled as the forest, it can be difficult to have our voice heard or our impact seen but none the less we still leave a trace...

Suitable for

  • Family friendly

Admission
