Whitstable Biennale 2012
Posted on 15 Aug 2012
Whitstable Biennale is a festival of contemporary visual art. Set in the small fishing town of Whitstable, the festival features a wide range of ambitious and experimental new work in film and performance.
This year's Whitstable Biennale takes place over three weekends between 1 - 16 September, and is packed with live performances, screenings, exhibitions, talks and events.
Whitstable Biennale 2012 presents three curated programmes which unfold across the three weekends of the festival, exploring the overlap between film and performance, and presenting some of the most energised, inventive and important younger artists working in visual arts today.
