Art in the City Talk: Timorous Beasties

Date 07.10.08

Time 6.00pm

Location Arnolfini


An audio recording of a talk Timorous Beasties, held at Arnolfini in October 2008, introduced by Jim Dixon, Urban Archaeologist.


Founded in 1990 by Alistair McAuley and Paul Simmons, Timorous Beasties is noted for its surreal and provocative textiles and wallpapers. Ali McAuley of Timorous Beasties will talk about their practice as well as the work they have created for Cabot Circus.  For Bristol they have introduced a sandblasted ‘wallpaper’ onto one of the main building elevations on Bond Street, the principal road which wraps around the scheme which was commissioned by InSite Arts on behalf of the Bristol Alliance.

Event supported by Bristol City Council, InSite Arts, and Cabot Circus (Bristol Alliance).
