Between July and November 2019 ‘a space’ arts supported three artists to spend a month at the Venice Biennale, as part of the British Council’s Venice Fellowship. Claudia Friend, Asten Holmes-Elliott and Laurence Rushby were shortlisted by ‘a space’ from an open call, and selected by the British Council, to invigilate the British Pavilion and develop their own artistic research.

The artists invite you to join them for an evening of performance, film and participation, to hear their stories and see Venice through their eyes. Consider your own future trip to Venice through their survivors’ guide. Contemplate how mapping the Biennale template to Southampton could bring a visual arts festival to our shores.
