Vélo – Andrew Smith

By 23rd April 2012 Exhibitions No Comments

The shimmering, spectral beauty and uncompromising brutality of the Tour de France passes through Bank Street Arts in Sheffield this summer in the form of Vélo, an exhibition of photographs by artist Andrew Smith. Reframing fragments of Tour transmissions and exploring the mythology and unrealities of cycling (of riders ‘dragging their souls on a string’) Vélo opens on Saturday 30th June at 6pm, shortly after the prologue of the 2012 Tour in Liège has drawn to a close.

The exhibition runs for the duration of this year’s Tour and features work from a book of Vélo that will be published to coincide with the show.
