Project Spotlight

Bristol Beacon Transformation

Exploring the ‘physicality of sound’ has shaped the creative vision behind the four public art projects commissioned as part of the Bristol Beacon Transformation.

Music and visual art are natural partners. Both artforms excite when genres are crossed, ideas bubble and conversations happen.

At Bristol Beacon you can experience and explore a permanent collection of artworks; from sound installations, to ceramics, to murals and sculptures. They explore the physicality of sound and can be enjoyed on an intense personal level and as a joyful communal experience.

The commissioned artworks bring the art of music-making to life in visual form.  They enhance the venue through two central ideas:

  • – Music-making as a shared, communal artform
  • – The building’s social and cultural ties to the trading and manufacturing past of the city.

Together, the artists reframe the building for a modern audience.  The artworks reference the Beacon’s history in a contemporary way and allow the organisation to move forward, empowered by the past.

The vision for the permanent collection was provided by Theresa Bergne, Field Art Projects and commissioned by Bristol City Council.
