Co-LAB opens 16th March 2013 – 1 day to go!

March 17, 2013

With only a day left to go until the doors were thrown open to the public, there was a lot to do on Friday.

The t-shirts crew’s were in hanging up stock and pictures were frantically being screwed onto walls.  The huge music system got a make-over from a ‘mini’ Unwellcome Relatives’ crew, 3dom threw some colour around inside and the outside got a neon make over by Paris.

And with only a few finishing touches left to do first thing on the Saturday morning the opening was well on schedule!

The College threw open it’s doors on Friday night as part of the Bristol Biennial (1st – 16th June).

It was a hugely busy and succesful night attracting artists and the local community who took great pleasure in the vast array of art work and creativeness that was on offer, enjoyed walking the art and sculpture trail and then relaxed to the sounds of Yaffle and Insomniac Jack.

This work can continue to be seen throughout the 16 days of the Biennial, but in order to take in the whole event it is best to save your visit for a Thursday, Friday or Saturday as this is when Art-el Gallery and Kathy Hindes, 1000 birds sound and visual installation are also available to view.

Here is a little run thorugh & visual sample of what you can expect to see.

Explore the College site via the art and sculpture trial, there are maps and information available in the main exhibition space.

EVERYTHING BEGINS WITH AN E & BRISTOL BIENNIAL

May 30, 2012

EVERYTHING BEGINS WITH AN E

Art-el Gallery is delighted to announce‘Everything Begins With An E’, a new body of work from the Graffiti writer and illustrator Erms.  UK born but now based in Paris, he continues to be active in the Parisian graffiti scene.

Taking diverse influence from classical New York and European graffiti, renaissance art through to pop art, traditional graphic design and illustration, the 80s Hip Hop movement and beyond. Erms takes us on a unique aesthetic exploration of the alphabet, of complex patterns, grids and graphic style.

The title for the show is inspired by the famous rave track of the same name. It also plays with the first letter of the artists moniker as well as having intrinsic links to the rave scene.

Last Night on Earth

The theme highlights the dangers of both of these pursuits that become all consuming, and when taken to the extreme, the darker elements begin to appear…

BRISTOL BIENNIAL @ THE COLLEGE PROJECT

Happening alongside this, in conjunction with The College Project will be the opening off the Bristol Biennial with an explosive multi-media event showcasing an array of visual art by the college creative’s, including an art and sculpture trial, live music and refreshments throughout the evening.   You will be blown away by the transformation of the old City of Bristol College, now a thriving artistic community in the midst of beautiful gardens.

See below for what we have in store for you.

The theme for this year’s Bristol Biennial is Storytelling, inviting participants to interpret the theme through visual arts, film and theatre. Storytelling exists in all facets of life: we tell stories and anecdotes to engage others and break down isolating barriers between individuals or groups. Storytelling can enrich our lives, it can be cathartic, it can impart wisdom or illustrate values and customs.

Photographer Matthew Smith (Mattko) has been invited to showcase his vast body of work.Mattko has spent the last 20 years documenting social movements in the UK.

Read an interview with Mattko and a review of his last exhibition in Crack Magazine.



Alongside the exhibitions, there will be an outdoor art and sculpture trail from the College Project artist studio and workshop residents.

Keep an eye out for the Immersive video, sound & sculptural installation By workshop resident Kathy Hinde & Matthew Fairclough called ‘A Thousand Birds’. This work has been partly created by the wider community, who have been creating origami cranes for it. You can still participate if you follow the instructions on this video.

The installation will be open for viewing at the at the same time as the gallery.  Other work will be available to view throughout the duration of the Bristol Biennial, 1st to 16th June.

There will also be live performance on the evening of the 1st from musicians Yaffle (Benita Johnson & Helen Gregory) and Insomniac Jack and a circus performance in ‘The House of Curious Engagements’.
