Spike Island

Summer Exibitions Preview

This Friday 29 June, 6–9pm

After two weeks of constructing walls, building seating structures and hanging prints, we welcome visitors this Friday to enjoy a first look at our new summer exhibitions.

Pull Everything Out brings together Corita Kent's screenprints from the 1960s with contemporary work by Ciara Phillips, while Jesse Jones's The Struggle Against Ourselves combines movement, sound and light to create an immersive and haunting video installation.

The preview culminates with a live performance by Lydia Kavina, theremin virtuosa and Jones's frequent collaborator, at 9pm. Spike Café is open till late for drinks, food and socialising.

The Otolith Group Screening and Discussion

Tuesday 3 July, 6pm

Having recently premiered at dOCUMENTA (13), The Radiant is the newest film by artist collective The Otolith Group, exploring the aftermath of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan.

Founding members Anjalika Sagar and Kodwo Eshun visit Spike Island next week to present The Radiant for the first time in the UK, and the screening is followed by a discussion of the work and their wider practice with members of Bristol Diving School.

A Summer of Pop-up Shows

Starting Thursday 5 July

Throughout the summer, we host a series of one-night-only exhibitions organised by groups within the Spike Island community. These pop-up projects take place in a new temporary gallery space, the entrance to which is at the rear of the building on Sydney Row.

The first event takes place on Thursday 5 July, 6–8pm, and features work by members of Spike Associates, a network of artists, curators and other creative producers.
