24th – 25th September 2016
A weekend of contemporary art exhibitions in artist homes and studios in and around the districts of Southbourne and Pokesdown in Bournemouth. Featuring over forty local and international artists invited by individual curators to create site specific work in a broad range of media. Exclusive brochure available on signing up for your free ticket and all venues are within 15 mins walk a bit of a mystery tour if you will!
The weekend will provide a unique opportunity to follow a trail, visiting eight spaces that are rarely open to the public. This will be much more than a traditional open studio or exhibition. Each venue has its own theme and all the work has been carefully considered and chosen for each space.
The tour will take you from around Pokesdown station through to a number of venues around Southbourne Grove area down to the beach and back again. Velo Domestique will be hosting a number of films so you can get a cuppa and a sit down on your journey. You will see drawing, painting, sculpture, performance, film, installation and photography as well as listening to live music and observing ‘happenings’ all within one day.
One of the homes will have a performance on Saturday evening and the event will end with an evening of funk and jazz all played on vinyl by a great set of DJ’s on Sunday evening.
