No Great Crime: Bristol’s Arresting Art

Thu 22 July, 2021 @ 6:00 PM - Mon 2 August, 2021 @ 6:00 PM

Free

Opening night: Thursday 22 July, 6-9pm
Opening hours: Tuesday – Sunday, 12-6pm

An exhibition looking at the struggles and strife of creating street art in Bristol; celebrating the value and beauty of street art and rejecting the hypocrisy of the approach to it by the Bristol authorities.

While the M Shed (the council’s prized showcase museum dedicated to showcasing all things Bristol) hosts a huge street art exhibition this summer, and as the Council and the Mayor’s office work to sell Bristol as an international centre of street art, the artists who work in the city face prosecution and harassment as they create this vibrant visual art.

This exhibition will feature some striking and beautiful pieces of Bristol street art from the PRSC’s own archives, alongside testimonials from local street artists about the realities of painting the Bristol streets, and their brushes with the law.
