D.A.F.T. Related events & participants: THE (deviant) ART FESTIVAL in Trollhättan

Fred Lindberg started THE (deviant) ART FESTIVAL as a society and network of contemporary artists in London 2005. The thought behind these art events was to put people and ideas together rather than single pieces of art. To create a foundation for collaborations. In 1937 Hitler exhibited “Entartete Kunst”, 1962 came Fluxus events like “The Festival of Misfits” and today our Art is striving to exist in-between being singled out as a degenerate, or choosing to be a misfit.

Charlotte, Graham, Giles, Matt B and Myself have a huge show on Tuesday 10th of June 6mp - 8 pm we've taken over a huge five story building called Central House it's opposite the whitechapel art gallery. We will be pretending to be the graduating year of an art college degree, each of us is playing the parts of up too 20 different artists, the total being somewhere around 70, we're not sure as none of us has yet to figure out how to use a calculator. You are all welcome, their will be guards on the door so you will not be able to bring your own alcohol, plus the inside of the building is controlled by evil alcohol overlords who will stop at nothing to make sure it will cost you an awful lot to get even half cut.

(deviant) Artist's other projects: Lee Maelzer at Gallery Carter

Lee Maelzer The way of seeing and language developed creates an interdependence which makes the artist own her subject and the subject in turn control her inescapably. Her paintings, seemingly both nostalgic and traditional, have a sting in the tail, offering a contemporary vision of the world told with traditional and technical craft. The observation of Vuillard with the realities of today. A graduate from The Royal College of Art, she has work in international collections and she has exhibited widely in Britain in group shows such as the prestigious John Moores painting exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery, the BP Portrait Award, the Hunting Art Prizes and in Germany, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, New York and Switzerland. She has carried out residences abroad including an Arts Council of England Residency in Colima, Mexico and the Abbey Fellowship at the British School in Rome.
