Preview: Kinetica Art Fair

Friday 17 October 2014
Words Alice Bell

Opening today, Kinetica Art Fair provides a global platform for studios and artists working in interdisciplinary new media art. It champions artistic innovation and the point where art and technology meet.

Now in its sixth year, the fair is held at the Truman Brewery in East London. Many of the exhibitors’ works typify universal concepts; it is through their performative and the viewers’ immediate engagement with them that a strong responsive relationship to the concepts are formed. The viewer activates the works into being, a kind of living art where there is a physical dialogue between the viewer and the work.


Kinetica this year includes a private collection of pioneering kinetic works presented by Austin Desmond Fine Art, including rare works by some of the grandfathers of Kinetic Art produced between 1948 and 1979.

Kinetica Art Fair opens today until Sunday the Truman Brewery and a series of events will be running each day.
