Bristol Biennial 2014: Crossing the Line

Fri, 12/09/2014 - Sun, 21/09/2014

Over 40 artists will take part in the Bristol Biennial, an artist-led festival that celebrates engaging projects by emerging artists. Running from the 12 - 21 September 2014, the festival takes 'Crossing the Line' as its theme, and will explore artistic boundaries and encourage collaboration across the city. Artworks will pop up in churches, shopping malls, community centres, terraced houses and high streets and will include interactive exhibitions, moving sculptures, a secret music gig and unusual guided tours.

St Andrews Park and the Northern Slopes will play host to an ancient uprising of Grass Men, where audiences can witness a performative and sculptural intervention by artist Ashley Peevor. Fountains in the city centre will be transformed into a temporary cranberry farm. Artists Hanna & Julia Rohn will make a colourful intervention in Bristol’s harbourside, highlighting both the aesthetics and politics of mass food production.
