Tempting Failure

Tempting Failure is a festival of international performance art and noise art, showcasing under-represented or extreme artwork that may interrogate risk or challenge preconceptions. TF2016 will host over 50 performances and around 85 artists in a range of venues across multiple London Boroughs from 21 - 29 July 2016. 

Prior to TF2016, they have programmed over 125 artists to perform, mentored 5 graduate artists, 
booked 39 artist speakers, and supported 25 artists through masterclasses. Tempting Failure was founded by Thomas John Bacon and conceived in 2011, initially as part of his PhD at University of Bristol to examine specific phenomenological concerns around body art, TF then subsequently expanded to become an annual event and arts organisation.  

Tempting Failure is invested in the support of Performance Art and Noise Art, as well as the professional development of artists at all stages of their careers and the education of all.
