'Artspace', a film that celebrates the 40th anniversary of the creation of what would eventually turn into Spike Island, Bristol is being shown at Spike Island as part of sn exhibition curated by Elisa Kay and Alice Motard till June 19th.
To celebrate Artspace’s 40th anniversary, Spike Island presents an archival display of material selected from the recently catalogued records of Artspace held at the Bristol Record Office (BRO). Significant administrative documents are exhibited alongside letters, photographs, posters and slides showcasing the group’s diverse activities, including international exchanges, exhibitions and events.
A newly commissioned film directed by artist Kypros Kyprianou weaves together archival and contemporary footage, from interviews with key figures in the development of Artspace, to footage of the industrial sites that Artspace repurposed, to trace how we got ‘from there to here’ and reveal the people, places and wider socio-political situation in which Artspace was founded.
There is also a related exhibition in the Test Space and a discussion event.
