My past 5 months at Spike Island have been great and part of the time has been spent working towards this weekend, the 2012 Spike Island Open. Over 80 artists’ studios, 2 major exhibitions, talks, performances and a host of other quality moments. There were over 7000 visitors and I think I spoke to alot of them! There was a great buzz around the place and all involved worked their socks off putting together this event that it was great for me to play a small part in.
A great many thanks to all those tireless organizers who made the event happen!
I was fortunate enough to have some work selected for the spike open video channel, which you can view here. It features some great work from throughout the building.
On the friday night we partied like Art Stars… and then in time honoured fashion made sure I was ready to talk politely to the many interesting folks who came through our space.
As if that wasn’t enough there was a very busy team running around creating this collection of video interviews with some of the bewilderingly diverse array of talents that Spike has to offer. Check them out here.
To round it off those busy folks over at Made in Bristol have written a review of the event (they were even kind enough to mention me), you might recognize one of them in my pictures…;)
If you have images or a review of the event then please get in touch and I’ll gladly add you to this post.
