Behind the Scenes Studio Visits: Alexander Stevenson
Saturday 22 October, 2pm
Chat with artists based at Spike Island, explore their studios and view works-in-progress during these informal encounters. Each artist gives a brief introduction to their practice followed by an opportunity for questions and discussion.
Alexander Stevenson discusses his working methodology of mining information to extract and re-present an idea. Huge fabric sculptures, theatrical performances and quasi-historical narratives generated from remote locations, are just some of the outcomes.
When & Where
Spike Island is an international centre for the development of contemporary art and design. Based in Bristol, UK, it is home to a gallery, café and working space for artists, designers and creative businesses. A vibrant hub for production, presentation and debate, we offer opportunities for audiences to engage directly with creative practices through participation and discussion.
Our vision is to position art as central to society, which we do in two ways: by offering a high quality, challenging programme of exhibitions and events; and by fostering a dynamic and critically engaged community of artists and designers. Spike Island collaborates with local and regional partners as well as with international institutions, museums and universities.
