The Buffalo Infringement Festival is a non-profit driven, non-hierarchical grassroots initiative that brings together a wide range of eclectic, independent, experimental and controversial art in all its forms. Visual, performing arts and media arts are all welcome here.
Held at multiple venues in and around Buffalo’s Allentown neighborhood, the festival is an 11-day annual event that runs from the last weekend in July through the first weekend in August.
Infringement Festival is an interdisciplinary festival open to all critical artists. Celebrating freedom of expression and designed as a veritable art-democracy, the festival stands up against an oppressive neoliberal worldview and all its billboard trucks, televisions, flyers, ads, jingles and wars for television. An important reaction. And the depoliticization of the people by this diversionary spectacle.
Infringement Festival welcomes a variety of performances and cultural resistances. Theater troupes, performers, street activists, political theater, musicians, radical performances, visual artists, cinema, marginalized arts, spoken word, puppetry, underprivileged groups, and anyone else who wishes to do so. It artistically infringes on the monoculture that creeps into every corner of our lives.
The Infringement Festival aims to emphasize both critical practice in art and artistic practice in action. It also aims to provide a positive environment that encourages and fosters critical art.
