Description

Thinking of the Outside was an exhibition of ambitious new art works presented in unusual sites across Bristol's historic city centre in association with Bristol City Council and Picture This. Featuring moving image installations, painting, sculpture and live events Thinking of the Outside offered an intriguing route through the Old City, exploring the relationships between insider and outsider. The education programme was co-ordinated by Arnolfini.

Phil Collins, the louder you scream, the faster we go, 2005 (video production company and film)

The louder you scream, the faster we go was a new project by Phil Collins which established a video production company in Bristol to create pop-promos for local unsigned acts. This work developed throughout the duration of Thinking of the Outside. Working with a marketing expert, choreographer and film crew, Shady Lane Promotions selected three acts from solicited recordings, creating videos in locations around Bristol. The resulting promos were then screened at Ashton Court Festival.

Situations

Situations is an art commissioning and research programme which operates from a University base, but produces artworks, events and publications outside the academic context. The programme was initiated in October 2003 by Claire Doherty, who is Senior Research Fellow in Fine Art at the University of the West of England, Bristol. From the start, the programme’s guiding principles were to combine the ambition of a commissioning agency model with the critical rigiour of an academic research centre. We believe that artists have the capacity to bring something we might never have imagined to a particular place and we are committed to realising those dreams. Curating is far more than project management to us. It is a creative, critical and often passionate undertaking where we seek to understand the best possible means through which to support an artist to make an outstanding work of art in response to a specific situation.
