Outdoor Rolling Exhibition
December 2, 2017 @ 12:00 pm – December 23, 2017 @ 6:00 pm
The outdoor rolling exhibition Buy or Burgle It on Jamaica Street wall ran throughout December from Saturday 2nd until the 23rd. The exhibition changed daily, thus creating a rolling exhibition.
Buy or Burgle It was designed to provide an outlet for aspiring and established artists to showcase and sell their work, and to offer to the public the opportunity to purchase artworks at an affordable price. Displayed artworks could be purchased at the Stokes Croft China shop.
As well as providing a canvas for artists to exhibit their work and experiment with weatherproof techniques, the outdoor gallery aims to give local communities and passers-by a sense of ownership of the public space, challenging established ideas of private property and commercial enterprise. Hanging the work outside will mean it is vulnerable to vandalism and theft. Trust and respect are therefore central elements of this exhibition.
Artists taking part to Buy Or Burgle It are: Alpha Wilson, Annie Lilygreen, Ben Hartley, Benoit Bennett, Hannah Anderson, James George, Jill Eastland, Justin Quinnell, Lara Luna Bartley, Pablo Teresa, Phoebe Tye, Rebecca Hiscocks, Ruby Fleming, Wistful Horizons, Shaun Harrigan, Tudor Titzoiu, Thomas Eastland and Xavier Roy.
