Amy Franceschini and the Futurefarmers

Date 13.07.14

Time 1.00 - 2.30pm

Location Hart's Bakery, Bristol


Public Art Now: Live Events bring together some of the most internationally recognised artists and producers in public art to Bristol for a series of five events, which will be live streamed internationally.

The series is produced in association with the Bristol Festival of Ideas and includes artists Jeremy Deller, Futurefarmers, Katie Paterson, Theaster Gates and Anne Pasternak, President and Artistic Director, Creative Time.


Following a sell-out lecture by Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller, Situations presents the second in its Public Art (Now) live event series with San Francisco-based artist and Futurefarmer Amy Franceschini bringing her ‘boat oven’ to Bristol. Inspired by the possibilities of urban food production, Amy’s projects include Victory Gardens – where San Francisco’s City Hall plaza was transformed into allotment gardens – and Flatbread Society, a compelling proposition to create a permanent site dedicated to grain production and baking on Oslo’s coverted waterfront.

Amy is also founder of award-winning artist and architecture collective Futurefarmers. Keep a look out as the ‘boat oven’ – a makeshift oven housed in a fully serviceable canoe – will set sail from Bristol’s harbourside on Saturday 12th as an exciting prelude to Sunday’s event. Seek the unexpected!

Hart’s bakery is one of the cities finest independent bakeries and a special venue from which to host Amy Franceschini’s Sunday talk. Get involved as we fire up the oven and bake bread together. Produced by Situations, Public Art (Now) is a national programme about challenging where, when and how art takes place. Watch a webcast of this event at
