About The Contract

Venice Agendas 2017: The Contract was a programme of events including an exhibition, a publication, talks and performances in London, Venice, Margate and Folkestone.

The theme of this edition, The Contract, is particularly relevant both politically and socially. Contracts, whether written or spoken, are promises and agreements that we make with each other, within our communities and across society in general.

The project brought together artists and professionals to share and discuss what a contract means to them, their experiences of relationships governed or suggested by contracts and what might be anticipated or expected in the context of contemporary visual arts and current world events, including the UK Brexit decision.
