NOSE 2015 - Art Right in Front of Your Face

Free arts festival, 15th-17th May, multiple venues across Exeter

Now in its 4th year, the NOSE festival hits Exeter this weekend with an absolute blinder of a programme. True to its commitment to place art in public spaces, right in front of your face, NOSE presents performance events, a photographers' gallery, an audio tour, plus more, all around the topic of Routes and Chutes. And it's all FREE!

Tonight, Friday 15th May, there's a 'proto-immersive' performance piece O-B-A-F-G that sits the audience in a dark room (at Exeter Phoenix Black Box) for an audio 'play' - you can also listen in online (or at 106.8fm in the Exeter area) to Phonic.FM and create your own 'happening' at home. Free tickets here.

The Foxhibitionists will be hitting the streets from 5pm tonight (and Saturday 16th at the same time), exposing the pubic to their art. Keep your eyes peeled for some foxy individuals in trench coats...

Up at Exeter University, at Russell Seal Fitness Centre, there's Psychogeogging - run around the city without ever leaving the treadmill.

On Sunday 17th follow artist Rosie King's Walk Along a Promise - an installation in Princesshay, 10am-5pm.

From today, there's an audio tour, From Books to Tree, that starts at Exeter Library and ends up at the Heavitree - one of Mythogeoghrapher Phil Smith's famous 'mis-guided' walks.

Will you be able to find the 'dead drops' secreted around the city to download free stuff?

Check out the website. From Saturday 16th, there will also be info boxes around the city (Exeter Phoenix, Bike Shed, etc) where you can grab a free badge and a full brochure.

NOSE, 15th-17th May. All over Exeter.
