PREVIEW: The Sunday Art Club

The free outdoor festival will celebrate diversity in the arts in August and September.

Based in Shoreditch, the socially distanced festival will also be available to view online for everyone to watch the programme of theatre, jazz, film and visual art installations.

The Sunday Art Club will be hosted by Voxonica, highlights of the programme are set to include a live mural painting by contemporary
artist Aurelie Freoua who creates rhythm and harmony through contrasting colours and light in her paintings; a live set from emerging DJs influenced by jazz, reggae, house and hip-hop; live music from Jazz on the Rox showcasing a blend of romantic and seductive jazz classics; an installation from abstract urban artist Christian Asare, a British Ghanain Artist whose
variations in culture and identity influence his creative expression; performances directed by Khoas’ James Scotland (Asst. Director, She Ventures and He Wins, Young Vic) and a short film from NatWest and BP Award-winning director, choreographer and performance-art artist Greta

Co-curated by James Scotland, co-founder of Khaos and Trix Mendez, founder of Outside The Zone, The Sunday Art Club is a chance to bring live art back to audiences. It offers audiences online and in person the opportunity to see alternative, exciting new work in a Covid-safe setting.

Talking about the news James Scotland said: “The Sunday Art Club is vital to the life-blood of the independent art scene and endeavours to cater to underrepresented artists, both British and international, who otherwise might lose their voices as the arts industry emerges from the aftermath of COVID-19. This is an opportunity for artists to make meaningful connections as well as for audiences to reconnect with grassroots talent producing exemplary work.”

The Sunday Art Club is free to attend both in person and online, with donations encouraged to support the artists and creatives involved. More artists will be announced on social media over the coming weeks for upcoming dates. It will take place on the 30th August and 27th September.
