Venue: The Vestibules
Artists
Synecdoche

Artists from Bristol group Synecdoche present this group exhibition at The Vestibules, City Hall.

“dis: prefix – changing a term to the negative
place: noun – a particular position, point, or area in space; a location / verb – to put something somewhere

“displace: verb – to move or put out of the usual or proper place

“Artists from Synecdoche will explore the ideas that these definitions evoke during their month-long residency. Displaced from their normal routines to make art in a public space, they are aiming to work differently, reacting to this new environment, bringing a range of practices and ideas that will hopefully change and evolve over time.

“The visitors may influence what happens, through interaction, conversation or by their very presence. There will always be something to see, to inspire and engage. Come with an open mind; every day will be different.

“Can the experience of being displaced offer a fresh perspective, unexpected connections and a new understanding?

September 5-29: Mon-Fri 11am-3pm (7pm Wed).

Closing party Wed 27, 4-7pm.

“We’ll be there at other times too. If the doors are open, please come in.”
