Spike Island will be launching its popular annual open weekend, and from 6pm until 9pm visitors can have a first look behind the scenes of this busy building that is home to more than 80 artists, plus designers, filmmakers and other creative practitioners.
Artists' film and video agency Picture This, based in the same building as Spike Island with an entrance on Sydney Row, presents consensus rouge noir, a newly commissioned 16mm film by French artist Jimmy Robert between 6pm and 9pm.
At Works|Projects, a commercial contemporary art gallery based in the same building as Spike Island with an entrance on Sydney Row, Magnus Quaife presents 1968 and Other Myths, a new series of paintings that considers the power of the image in relation to events or moments that have helped shape our cultural myths.
Bristol Diving School, an independent studio and exhibition space run by recent graduates, opens its doors to nine artists' studios alongside an exhibition of new work in association with the Bristol Festival of Photography.
From 6pm to 9pm, the Bristol Ferry Boat Company will run boats continuously between the stop outside of Arnolfini and the ss Great Britain stop, which is just a few minutes' walk from Spike Island, Picture This, Works|Projects and Bristol Diving School. It takes ten minutes and costs £2 single or £3 return.
