The Most Popular Art Exhibition Ever! tackles one of Perry’s primary concerns: how contemporary art can best address a diverse cross section of society.
'We admire Grayson Perry for his ability to communicate on many levels and make art accessible for all. This is a fantastic opportunity to see a wide range of his latest works, including a film screening room. The galleries at Arnolfini are buzzing and there’s a sense of optimism for the future following a difficult time of funding cuts.'

People flow, vessels drift, ink runs, light trails, tracks are traced: The Dynamics of Drifting presents a series of Tim Knowles’ works that forge and record passages through land and water.
'We’re really excited to pay a long overdue visit to Hestercombe for Tim Knowles’ first solo show in the UK. We’re particularly looking forward to discovering more about Where the Wind Blows, Knowles’ prototype wind-walking device and its proposed journeys.'

For We The People Are The Work Fontaine has produced a series of new works that tackle the questions of morality, agency and freedom of speech through illuminated text in the space. Lifting quotes from Donald Trump and the Brexit debate, she creates a visual and conceptual polyphony where the viewer is invited to take a position.
'As a year overshadowed by Brexit and Trump begins to draw in we’re looking forward to seeing what new works they've produced for the show at Karst!'
