145 - Briefing for a Descent into Hell: open doors Sat 13th of June (continues until 27th of June)


Briefing for a Descent into Hell

June 13-27 Emporium, Bristol

The title for this show is taken from the Doris Lessing book ‘Briefing for a Descent into Hell’, as this seems to fit with the shows original theme of Babylon and the Garden of Eden, which can be interpreted in many ways, for instance; original sin, death, religion, love, the search for meaning, purpose and happiness.

Please come along to the opening on Saturday the 13th & submit any work you like for the show,

There will be live music and makings going on all day and into the night on the 13th, and also there will be other events planned for during the opening period (tbc)

Below, for those who do not know us is a blurb about us and what we do.

We are an ever expanding collective of artists based in Bristol, Leeds, Manchester and London that work under the moniker 145. We believe that art should be about collaboration and community rather than the search for audience and applause, and our work echoes this ethos.

Our exhibitions are site specific, and encourage interactivity and involvement from our audience; they are open to anyone to come along and get involved in, we hope to encourage skill sharing and participation amongst all audience members. Our shows are a combination of paintings, drawings, writing, sculpture, makings. We are a not for profit collective.
