From Friday Feb 17th at 7.30pm
Ben Lewis’s Taken to Pieces: Peculiar Wood – ‘an attempt by the artist to fail better’- takes an album you know, a few that you don’t, a pair of scissors, a failed career as a DJ, and uses both chance and certainty to create… something else.
Friday 10th February
The North by North West Poetry Tour presents new collaborative works in performance, with a core group of touring performers combining with writers local to six towns and cities across the region.
January 16th- February 4th
Long-standing Bank Street Arts collaborator Stephen Carley returns this month with his new show abstract memory remnant A to B.
Deadline noon on 31st January 2017
We’re offering two Bank Street Arts members a free micro exhibition each in 2017. We’ll accept proposals for work in any format.
In Summer 2016, BSA residents Bryan Eccleshall and Chris Graham launched a set of twenty-four books that began as a documentation of their Sans Terre/+ exhibition, a complex and disorienting installation that offered a dense re-thinking of the current refugee crisis and the various Gulf Wars that have precipitated it. The resulting books are now available to buy, either online or directly from Bank Street Arts.
2nd Nov onwards
A complex, nuanced and dazzling blend of radical dissent, catharsis, and critique of institutional power, the work of BSA resident Chris Graham- who’s going to be occupying our atrium over the next few months- is as likely to reference Mickey Mouse or Kate Moss as it is Zygmunt Bauman.
A series of workshops led by Poet Suzannah Evans that are ideal for anyone who struggles to find time or motivation to write. No conventional prompts, no judgement, just plenty of time, a contemplative environment and a supportive atmosphere.
09/02/17 – 06/07/17
A writing course from one of the UK’s leading publishers of short fiction. Comma Press is always looking for new voices in short fiction and it’s hoped that this course will unearth and develop contenders for one of their showcases of new writers.
The wall in our atrium is the largest single exhibition space in Bank Street Arts. We’re looking for proposals from anyone with an interest in exploring its possibilities.
Our Keyhole Gallery is the smallest of the various exhibition spaces that make up Bank Street Arts. We’re interested in hearing from artists, makers or curators who think that they could do something interesting with it.
Exhibiting at Bank Street Arts doesn’t necessarily have to mean committing to a show of a week or longer, and our micro exhibitions offer a way to present work within a much narrower time frame.
Spring 2016- spring 2017
The Nymph and the Shepherd is an ongoing series of photographs chronicling the transitions of resident Jesse Alexander’s rural Somerset surroundings 160 miles from Sheffield. The series commenced in Spring 2016 with a commitment from Jesse to send one image per week to Bank Street Arts over the course of a year.
