There's an outdoor art exhibition coming to Ashton Court Estate in DecemberPosted on: 26 Nov 2020
Make that long-awaited return to the outdoors post-lockdown.
The team behind Bristol-based charity Artspace Lifespace are gearing up for the launch of their latest exhibition project, bringing a unique art experience to the grounds of Ashton Court Estate.
Organised in collaboration with London-based non-profit We Are From Dust, the art park will feature sculptures from both the UK and USA, exploring ideas of play, protest and transformation.
We Are From Dust Artspace will get underway with a launch event running from 16:00-18:00 on Wednesday 6 December, and is set to remain on display during the buildup to Christmas.
With support from Arts Council England, the innovative outdoor sculpture gallery will include work from artists Paige Tashner, Hugo Farmer, Andrea Greenlees and Cjay Roughgarden.
The work will be displayed in the form of an interactive art trail, inviting attendees to engage in various ways using mobile devices.
We Are From Dust Artspace will be free to attend and open to visitors of all ages, with walkabout circus performers and a special appearance from Air Giants' large-scale soft robotic sculptures set to feature as part of the opening event.
London-based arts organisation We Are From Dust are dedicated to bringing the transformative power of interactive art to a range of public spaces around the world, having previously hosted events in Utah and California.
Their upcoming collaboration with Artspace Lifespace, who have taken up a residency at Ashton Court Mansion in recent years, is set to showcase a range of work, from art previously shown at Burning Man Festival to Bristol-made pieces addressing topics of protest and self-reflection.
