Coming up at God's House Tower
‘a space’ arts’ newest venue, God’s House Tower, has now been open for several weeks. The new Arts and Heritage venue opened with a headline show, Bloom, by Plymouth based artist Keith Harrison.
Bloom is the first in a year long series of exhibitions by visual artists exploring Southampton’s relationship to the sea as part of GHT: Beside the Sea.
It isn’t Keith’s first involvement with ‘a space’ arts having previously been invited to the Arches Studios as part of a panel discussion about Artist Opportunities in 2017. That coincided with the success of his ambitious Joyride project that won Jerwood Open Forest in the same year.
Keith Harrison will be in conversation with ‘a space’ arts’ Director, Daniel Crow, on Thursday 12th December where he’ll be sharing his thought process, working methods, and how he approached the GHT: Beside the Sea commission.
The Q&A will be followed by a performative event on the God’s House Tower rooftop (weather permitting) when Keith will attempt to ignite his work under the light of a full moon. To book see the God’s House Tower website.
Other highlights of the artistic programme include the inaugural; A Glass of Art, a new monthly social event discussing and exploring the exhibitions within the building. A Glass of Art starts on Tuesday 10th December at 6pm.
sarah filmer’s Kit the Walls workshops continue into December, with the next one on Saturday 14th from 12 noon.
In the new year look out for the Venice Sharing Event on Friday 31st January where artists; Claudia Friend, Asten Holmes-Elliott and Laurence Rushby share their recent experiences in Venice through performance, film and participation.
