August 13th to 17th 2014


The Art Marathon Festival is a celebration of contemporary artistic practice held each August in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. Local, national and international artists come together to present unique performances of their work, share skills in public workshops, take part in provoking discussions and participate in a 24 hour marathon of live art making. The festival is organized by Eastern Edge Gallery: a not for profit artist-run centre committed to exhibiting contemporary art in diverse media. 2013 marked the first year with a festival theme. It opened doors, windows, and strange cellars to us, and invited the entire city into the splendour ofdreamworlds. This year, artists working with ideas of chance, spectacle, and the uncanny take center stage at this years’ Art Marathon Festival as we explore the theme Carnival. Suspending disbelief artists act as ringmasters ushering in visions that promise to mesmerize, delight, and captivate minds both young and old. Come play a game of chance, get lost in the magic of the unknown.


Stay tuned for details!
