Cementa17 Art Festival Cementa Inc. is a not-for-profit incorporated association dedicated to cultivating contemporary Australian art. Cementa’s major production is a biennial festival of contemporary art in the town of Kandos in the NSW Central West. Cementa festival brings together artists from urban and regional contexts for a 4-day celebration of the state of contemporary art in Australia. More than 60 artists exhibit video, installation, sound, performance and 2D and 3D artworks in venues and locations across the town and its surrounds. Venues include shopfronts, vacant lots, the scout hall, local museum, community centre, golf course, people’s yards, rural properties and public parks. The works address the identity, history and current social, environmental and economic context of the town and its region. Taking its regional situation as its focus, Cementa celebrates the rich diversity of voices that can be heard within our contemporary arts communities across the spectrum of practice, from the emerging to the established, from the obscure to the prominent.
