Spike Island to run 'Bring Your Baby' tours this autumn

Posted on: 01 Aug 2022

Enjoy two exciting exhibitions with your little one this autumn.


On Wednesday 14 September, Spike Island will host exhibition tours designed for parents or carers of babies.


Running from 11:00 until 12:00, 'Bring Your Baby' tours - run by Bristol-based producer Jane Porter - explore the art space's exhibitions 'When There Is No More Music to Write' and 'Hum'.


Visit Spike Island's website for more details and to book yourself a spot at this FREE event.



The tours are led by Jane Porter, who worked as an arts Producer in Bristol for a decade before changing her career after having two children.


She set up 'Bring Your Baby' in 2017 as a response to what she felt was a lack of activities that were designed for parents during her own maternity leave.


The first of two exhibitions featured in this event is 'When There Is No More Music to Write' - a two-person exhibition by artist and filmmaker Eric Baudelaire and avant-garde composer Alvin Curran.


Curated in collaboration with music historian Maxime Guitton, the exhibition includes three new films by Baudelaire, two large-scale 'sound sculptures’ by Curran, and an archive display assembled by Guitton. 


Alongside this, the tour features Amitai Romm's debut UK solo exhibition 'Hum' - which explores how nature is mediated by technology, speculating on the hybrid relationships that can be formed between plant life, sensors, data collection processes, and our own bodies.


This event is FREE, but places must be booked in advance. Visit Spike Island's website for more details.
