The festival will take place from 27 July to 12 August 2012.
The centrepiece of Deptford X 2012 will be ‘Gold Standard’, a temporary installation in the centre of Deptford by Hew Locke. Locke has worked with original old share certificates to explore the history and movement of money, power and ownership, creating his largest outdoor project to date.
Hew Locke and Indra Khanna have also selected the following headline artists for this year’s programme, Henna Nadeem, Dzine, Doug Jones and The Hidden Noise.
In addition to the headline artists, Deptford X features a Fringe of over fifty exhibitions, open studios and events creating a trail from New Cross to Greenwich.
