We have been working with the Department of Engineering at the University of the West of England to commission artist Alice Channer to create her first permanently sited sculpture for their new building.
Field Art Projects have been working with St William and Dallas-Pierce-Quintero to commission an artist to create a major new large-scale work in the heart of Battersea, London.
Artist Commissions for the Bristol Beacon Transformation
Public Art Statement for University of Bristol Temple Quarter Campus
Field Art Projects were appointed in spring 2012 to develop and deliver a public art strategy and programme for the University of Bristol’s residential site at Stoke Bishop, north Bristol. The project culminates with the launch of Sarah Staton’s new work Edith & Hans this week.
Field Art Projects are advising the Design Team for the new Bristol Arena on their art strategy and the art programme being delivered alongside the building.
I’ve been working with artists Rana Begum, Linda Brothwell, Giles Round and Libita Sibungu on a series of commissions as part of the Bristol Beacon refurbishment project.
The artworks are a response to this iconic building, its history, architecture and role as a venue for music-making. They include the textiles and fabrics within the new performance spaces, an architectural installation within the historic Lantern space, a contemporary intervention on the façade of the Lantern building, and a work that draws on Bristol Beacon’s relationship with the water that surrounds and flows through the city.
You can read more about the project here and look out for further posts later this year as we begin to share the development of each of the commissions.More news
