A group of artists from Synecdoche, a Bristol-based art community, will explore the ideas that these definitions evoke during their month-long residency at The Vestibules in September 2017. Displaced from their normal routines to make art in a public space, they are aiming to work differently, reacting to this new environment, bringing a range of practices and ideas that will hopefully change and evolve over time. The visitors may influence what happens, through interaction, conversation or by their very presence. There will always be something to see, to inspire and engage. Come with an open mind; every day will be different.

Can the experience of being displaced offer a fresh perspective, unexpected connections and a new understanding?

Closing party Weds 27th, 4 - 7pm

 

We’ll be there at other times too. If the doors are open, please come in. Please check the [dis]place Facebook event for updates or use the QR code.
