Folkestone Triennial 2014 – a public arts project founded in 2008 with the aim of regenerating the seaside town through art and creative activity – runs until November 2, making it a lively spot for a coastal get-away.
Internationally recognized artists have been invited to make contemporary artworks that will be exhibited throughout the town’s public spaces. What makes the Triennial unique is its lasting legacy – many of the works from each exhibition become permanent additions to the town, creating Folkestone’s own public art collection.
Works in the existing permanent collection include those by Cornelia Parker and Tracey Emin. Artists commissioned for this year’s Triennial include Yoko Ono, Andy Goldsworthy, and Pablo Bronstein.
Highlights include a sustainable rooftop food-themed installation, a wind powered lift that will carry people to the top of Folkestone’s Victorian viaduct, and a monumental beach hut in the style of 18th century architect Nicholas Hawksmoor.
