People who have saved this event:


The fourth year of this contemporary art festival features work from over 40 international artists at multiple locations around Cambridge with a hub on the ARU campus. Day of performance on 15 Oct.


Join us in Cambridge this October for Art Language Location 2016. The ALL2016 wagons will once again roll into town to bring you the very best in studio-fresh text-based art from across the UK and beyond

This year we welcome over 40 artists, creating between them a potent mix of installations, interventions, and explorations at Anglia Ruskin University and locations across the city. Amongst many highlights, don't miss Daniel Cockburn's multi-channel video installation at the Ruskin Gallery, Philip Cornett and Paul Kindersley's alternative estate agency at the ELAN project space, and the interactive, internet-streamed live performance by the Female Laptop Orchestra.

Alongside the playful and the carefree we also have several thoughtful and thought-provoking explorations of topical and contemporary issues. Les Monaghan shows portrait photographs from his local Syrian community and Sally Stenton investigates the disappearance of artefacts from the Aleppo National Museum, whilst Ana Mendes deals with digital identity and Rosy Greaves tackles digital currency.

On Saturday 15 October we hold our all-day Symposium and Day of Performances, featuring talks, guided tours and performance work with lunch and refreshments. This is a ticketed event, so book now via our website to avoid disappointment!

Join ALLs direcor Robert Good for a guided tour that winds through the halls and corridors of ARU in search of the 30+ interventions created by the selected artists. East Rd entrance 13:00 and 15:00 Saturday 29 October

So we hope you enjoy our annual offering of artfulness, we would love to see you at one of our events.

ALL runs from 13-29 October 2016 at Anglia Ruskin University and locations around Cambridge. Visit www.artlanguagelocation.org for full details.
