The Bearpit Outdoor Gallery hosted its first major international exhibition, ‘Resiste’, in October 2016. For the last 10 years ASARO have created political woodcut and lino print street art as part of their local protests, and in solidarity with international struggle.
Using materials found in the street, old furniture headed for landfill, we fashion unique pieces of furniture, which transcend the merely functional. Local artists working with materials found locally create a new aesthetic that clearly evokes the soul of Stokes Croft.
Katy Bauer, who devised the Banksy Q show, recognised that the phenomenon of the queue was important in and of itself. So she started to document the queue, and collected drawings, 3500 of them, by handing out pens and flyers.
