Deptford X is London’s longest running contemporary visual arts festival and has been experienced by over one million people since inception in 1998. This year the festival runs 23 September – 2nd October.


Building on a legacy of great art, Deptford X presents a new core programme in 2016, named ‘Platform 2016’. Five emerging contemporary artists will be commissioned to create new and ambitious site-specific works in Deptford. Platform 2016 will offer key support to young artists with great potential at an often overlooked stage of their nascent careers.

The Platform 2016 artists are Johann Arens, Joey Holder, Manuel Mathieu, Berry Patten, and Takeshi Shiomitsu. These five artists have been selected from a shortlist of nominations by a panel of art world experts. These are Rózsa Farkas, David Mabb, Ellen Mara De Wachter, Fatos Üstek and George Vasey.

The ten-day festival will see these ambitious visual arts projects installed in a diverse range of sites and venues across Deptford, South East London. They form the core programme of the festival, named ‘Platform 2016’, which sits alongside the parallel Fringe festival.

The Fringe will be bigger and brighter than ever, returning to its original, unjuried application process, we invite proposals from artists for independent projects, supported and facilitated – but not controlled – by Deptford X. More information and how to list your project can be found here http://www.deptfordx.org/fringe-info/
