The Festival of Independents is a celebration of these independent artist-run spaces which are run by Cambodian, Myanmar and Vietnamese nationals. Through a nine-day rolling performance, Charlie Dutton Gallery will be transformed into nine different installations which were conceptualised and communicated to the gallery via email, fax or surface mail by these artist-run spaces and their associated artists. These installations will offer visitors an unmediated insight into current grass roots thinking and visual art practice in each country.

The Festival of Independents is a collaboration between these artist-run spaces, Charlie Dutton Gallery and Project ‘petit a’. The aim is to highlight how these nationals are working to develop a contemporary scene of artists, creating art that is connected to the cultural traditions and their personal history of growing, living and working in Cambodia, Myanmar or Vietnam.
