Kallida Festival unveils visual arts programme for 2017 edition

The two-day event will be taking over Baskerville Hall on 28-29 July

Kallida Festival not only celebrates music, but brings together emerging new media artists to host an event that displays a diverse range of sounds and aesthetics with both art forms melding to create an immersive experience.

The festival will be working with Eyesymetric Productions this year to create visual pieces for its main music spaces. La Schmoove has been tapped for a large scale bespoke installation, and there’ll be custom pieces from Billy Fraser as part of his Think Tank series that questions the position between artist and viewer. Furthermore, the festival will feature geometric light sculptures from Susie Olczack, and a film screened on a dome that visualises the Universe through light and matter by Royal College of Art alumni Rose Leahy​, Sylvana Lautier​ and Kim Yip Tong.

Manchester audiovisual crew MorestateLab will also be bringing a live performance and light installation entitled Afterglow.
