The Art Licks Weekend is an annual festival that celebrates the activity of artist-led and non-profit project spaces across London. For its seventh year, the Art Licks Weekend takes on the theme of Interdependence: considering how participating projects work within a network of friendship, exchange and shared dialogue.
For 2019 the festival includes exhibitions and events programmed by 63 participating project spaces and collectives across London; working with 290 artists. There are also fifteen exhibitions from projects based across the UK who will be hosted by London spaces for the festival and this year sees the launch of the Art Licks Weekend radio station run in partnership with TACO! and RTM.
Art Licks Weekend Tours
As part of Art Licks Weekend 2019 there are four artist-led tours organised to cover the main festival areas, each taking up to 20 people to visit a selection of participating spaces. These tours are a great opportunity to talk to participating artists and curators as they give special introductions to exhibitions along the tour route. All the tours are artist-led, and tailored by each artist in relation to their practice.
