Thursday 21 November 2019 to Sunday 24 November 2019 (BIENNIAL event)
Cementa festival is a contemporary art festival in the post industrial town of Kandos NSW. Cementa brings together artists from urban and regional contexts for a four-day celebration of the state of contemporary art in Australia. More than 60 artists exhibit video, installation, sound, performance and 2D and 3D artworks in venues and locations across the town and its surrounds.
Venues include shopfronts, vacant lots, the scout hall, local museum, community centre, golf course, people’s yards, rural properties and public parks. The works address the identity, history and current social, environmental and economic context of the town and its region.
Taking its regional situation as its focus, Cementa celebrates the rich diversity of voices that can be heard within our contemporary arts communities across the spectrum of practice, from the emerging to the established, from the obscure to the prominent.
