Event: IKLECTIKA – Experimental Music & Book Fair, 17-18 July at Iklectik London
We live in a new era of interaction. The outcome of the pandemic has introduced a new relationship between artworks and spectators that goes not even beyond the unavoidable frontality of things but in the whole environment where we experience art. To survive in the current situation, art spaces, venues, galleries, museums and artists, and musicians have developed new experiences that comprise the architecture of the spaces and a new digital realm. A quick and profound transformation of how art and music are produced and experimented with in the last months has opened many new opportunities, interactions and diversity unimaginable a few years ago.
IKLECTIK presents IKLECTIKA, the first edition of their Experimental Music & Book Fair. They have invited pioneering experimental labels, publishers, and magazines to participate in a 2-day event full of talks, interviews, panel discussions, live acts and DJ sets.
London has a great musical heritage, and the pandemic has evidenced that it’s not something we can take for granted. Luckily the city also has a solid network of talented creatives that have been reimagining the current constraints. CLOT Magazine participates on the 17th July at 2 pm with the panel discussion Digital and physical liminalities in new hybrid artistic spaces. We have invited a few of the most relevant voices experimenting with these new artistic hybrid spaces.
Most Dismal Swamp (artist and curator), Alice Hoffmann-Fuller (artist, writer and curator) from Schemata Art and Nimrod Vardi (Creative Director/Founder) and Rebecca Edwards (curator) from arebyte Gallery, will discuss the challenges, the positive outcomes and interrogate what it’s to come next. Panel moderated by CLOT Magazine’s editors Meritxell Rosell and Lula Criado.
Some of the other names included are Chinabot, Colliding Lines, Earshots Recordings, LaPlaque Tournante, Flaming Pines, Fractal Meat, Goldsmiths Press, Repeater Books, The Wire, Touch, Café OTO, Kate Carr, Liz Helman, Jon Wozencroft or Atau Tanaka.
