Unnoticed Art Festival, the final presentation

On Sunday the 31st in August, the final presentation of the Unnoticed Art Festival took place in Pictura, Dordrecht the Netherlands. And afternoon with lectures and discussions and of course re-enactments of the original festival that took place in Haarlem on the 17th and 18th of May this year. As expected with such a title the performances ignored the presentation and the presentation the performances.

Together with Malou van Doormaal we reflected on our experiences during the festival.

Unnoticed Art Festival 2014

On May 17-18 222lodge will be organising the Unnoticed Art Festival 2014.
We’re happy to announce that we will be a part of this year’s edition.

“The festival for Unnoticed Art balances on the line between public and private. It shows artworks hiding in normality. The language, used to express the works, fits in the average social behaviour in public space and, because of that, will probably remain unnoticed to bystanders. The location of the festival will remain secret. That way the passers-by will be accidental and without knowledge of the occasion. They have their own aims, their own occupations, their own thoughts.
The final meeting of the festival (including re-enactments and the presentation of the book Unnoticed Art) will be at Pictura Dordrecht, August 31st 2014!”

If you like the concept, please help to realise the festival with a small donation.
