– UK + Touring

Sheffield Fringe is an artist-led curatorial project initiated to explore the intersection of art & documentary practices, through screenings, talks, exhibitions and research. Our curatorial interest centres on works that are firmly rooted within fine art practice yet tentatively linked to the documentary tradition. We hope to invite conversations on the role of art and conceptual approaches in documentary practice. Sheffield Fringe is held biennially to coincide with Sheffield Doc/Fest, creating a complimentary space & context to encourage creative collaborations between the contemporary art and documentary communities. It is otherwise a project with no fixed abode, with screenings/exhibitions throughout the year.

We are now open for artists’ moving image submissions for our 2016 edition, starting at Bloc Projects gallery, Sheffield, in June 2016, with a touring schedule to follow. We are interested in single-channel works that inspire dialogues, and/or are playful critiques of the documentary form, performance and spectatorship.
