Side by Side – the project
Working between the cities, pairs of artists responded to the Bristol Green Capital theme of Resources to produce series of art works.
Our cities’ creative community is one of our greatest Resources, used to problem solving, thinking laterally, and never taking things at face value. The ability to adapt to new ideas and face challenges head on are everyday practice for the artist.
The artists were given the word ‘green’ as their starting point for the project, and the group of painters, sculptors, photographers and illustrators found new creative partnerships and new ways of working in the development of the project.
This exhibition is an opportunity to be introduced to the cities’ artists, as they are introduced to each other.
Side by Side is the second exhibition in a series of projects bringing together the artists’ studios in the Bristol and Bath area. The first Side by Side exhibition was held in March 2010 at Bath Artists’ Studios and was curated by Lucy Ward and Claire Loder.
