Fringe Arts Bath (FAB) 2009 ⁄⁄

Date: 22 May – 7 Jun 2009
Website: www.fringeartsbath.co.uk
Location: england

Outline:

Fringe Arts Bath brings you a fantastic programme this year, packed full of great exhibitions and exciting events, from performance to installation, video to Bluetooth and live-internet-feed to tipsy wine trail, it’s all here and all of this in the beautiful setting of Bath’s heritage city center. Artists and curators will fill in the gaps – the vacant shops and empty spaces – of this city, bringing new, exciting art from across the UK and beyond – a contemporary art invasion! Highlights of this year’s festival include shows by both Bath Spa and Swansea Met Fine Art MA students presenting a wide range of work (at The Octagon, the American Musuem and Walcot Chapel); immersive and surreal investigations of lucid dreaming and oneirology through art (Lucid Dream, Manvers St) and the exciting results of FAB’s 2009 Photomarathon (also at the Octagon).

Join us on May 22 from 6.30pm for the opening night as we are let loose on the city, with special events planned at the Octagon, Milsom Street from 7pm. This will be followed by fun and frolics at an after party kindly hosted by the Green Park Brasserie, a night which is certainly not to be missed! All of the exhibitions and most of the events are FREE. Bath is perfectly suited to those on foot – so study our map and take yourself on a tour of the exhibitions we have on offer this year. This FAB little festival is run by a real passion for the visual arts and it shows – you’d be a fool to miss out!
