FESTIVAL IMINENTE NEW ART AND NEW MUSIC FROM EUROPE’S UNDERGROUND OLD TRUMAN BREWERY, LONDON FRIDAY 28 & SATURDAY 29 JULY, 2017
This Summer, a European cultural invasion hits the heart of Brexit Britain as the very first UK edition of Festival Iminente opens at London’s Old Truman Brewery. A two‐day festival of explosive and experimental Portuguese art and music, Festival Iminente brings the soul of Lisbon to the heart of London, following its successful debut in the Oeiras region of Lisbon in September 2016.
Curated by Portuguese artist Vhils and Lisbon’s Underdogs Gallery, Festival Iminente not only offers Brits mourning Brexit a chance to immerse themselves in the most innovative new music and art from Portugal but also enlists some of Europe’s most creatively exciting artists to invade the capital with their best work.
In yet another covert project set in a doomed, abandoned space, acclaimed Melbourne-based street artist Rone announces his latest work, The Omega Project – a nostalgic and haunting homage to the fading remnants of mid-century Australiana.
On the back of his hugely successful 2016 solo exhibition, Empty and a recent turn producing a large-scale mural for rural Victoria’s Silo Art Project, the internationally renowned Melbourne street artist has turned his attention back to his hometown for another fleetingly brief exhibition – this time set in a condemned suburban home. Check out this incredible VR-ready 3D tour of the site from the guys at Phoria:
In March 2017 British artist Banksy opened the doors to ‘The Walled Off Hotel’ in Bethlehem, Occupied Palestine.
FWTV went out to see the hotel and spend a few days gaining first-hand insight into life under occupation.

Mr Cenz: “This is my temporary studio in Holborn, London. Its a disused office shared with several other artists. We all pay a really reduced rent as its managed by a great charity called Uthink PDP. This is so important as having a studio in a central location in London is unattainable for most otherwise. I have lots of space and ventilation which is essential when working on large scale in spraypaint. My canvases are basically smaller and more intricate versions of my street pieces. On canvas i can experiment and push my style more adding extra dimensions and depth. These pieces are for Bartoux gallery in Paris.”
