Irena Sendler Exhibition at The Island, Bristol

Irena Sendler Exhibition

The Anglo Polish Society is delighted to announce that, with the generous assistance of the Polish Embassy we have been able to bring the Irena Sendler Exhibition to Bristol for a week in July.

The exhibition is open to everyone and there is no entry charge. There will be a talk on the evening of Wednesday 11th July starting at 7-30pm. There will be a nominal charge of £3 for this to cover the cost of Polish Cakes etc!

Should other organisations or groups want their own evening presentation this can be arranged via us with the curator, Antony Lishak.

In addition, there will be 8 sessions for schools aimed at children between 10 and 14 years old. The public are welcome to visit the exhibition during these sessions but are asked not to impede the children in their studies!

Irena Sendler was a Polish social worker who coordinated a rescue operation that saved hundreds of Jewish lives from the Warsaw Ghetto during World War Two. 2018 is the 10th anniversary of her death and has been designated The Year of Irena Sendler.

This 12-panel exhibition, which has been created by Holocaust education Charity Learning from the Righteous places her deeds in the historical context of the times, where in Poland under Nazi occupation, offering any assistance to Jews was punishable by death.

Learning from the Righteous is a Holocaust education charity that works with children aged 10 to 14 from a range of religious and cultural backgrounds. We focus on acts of rescue and resistance by those recognised by Yad Vashem as “Righteous Among the Nations”. We lead workshops for children and provide training to enable teachers to use our age-appropriate, fact-based materials in their schools. Children we work with are encouraged to respond to learning about the courage of those who chose to act during the Holocaust, despite the risks, by devising practical ways that they can make a positive impact on the lives of others and the world they live in.
OUR MISSION is to promote respect and mutual understanding by:
o Broadening children’s knowledge of the Holocaust in an age-appropriate way
o Using examples of “the righteous” to demonstrate our shared humanity
o Celebrating the “courage of the few” who chose not to be bystanders
o Encouraging children to devise practical ways of making a difference to the
lives of others

OUR AIMS are to:
o Provide fact-based learning resources for the 10 – 14 age group
o Support teachers with training programmes
o Engender in children an awareness that they can make a positive contribution to broader society

PLAYABLE PRINTS is an arcade of interactive artwork.

With most artwork you are directed not to touch. But with PLAYABLE PRINTS you are invited to break the rules and interact with the exhibits. Come along to the show to play and explore these new digital worlds hidden inside the prints.

At first, the framed screenprints appear as normal. As you get closer, you find the embedded digital technology brings the artwork to life. PLAYABLE PRINTS push the boundaries of what is possible in our continually merging virtual and physical environments.

The artworks are inspired by rigorous research into nostalgic retro games, with this particular exhibition focusing on pinball machines. The pinball machine is a fascinating example of traditional printmaking. From the screenprinting techniques used to manufacture the bright illuminated backglass, to the stenciling of the bold colourful cabinets. The sounds of the chimes and the steel ball hurtling over the thick varnished playfield wood, smashing against the plastic targets makes the pinball machine an overwhelmingly fascinating artefact.

This new set of Pinball PLAYABLE PRINTS are exhibiting for the first time here at SPACE, Bristol. They celebrate the memories, beauty and pop-culture that surround the arcade. Featuring artwork and gameplay that reflect upon the current political and social climate.

Jono Sandilands is a Bristol based graphic artist exploring design, printmaking and screen-based-technology, embedding interaction and games into physical artworks.

These PLAYABLE PRINTS are part of a series, and are available to purchase online or at the exhibition.

Supported by Pervasive Media Studio, Bristol.

Tools of the Trade Exhibition at SPACE, Bristol

Tools of the Trade Exhibition

ARTWORK + PRINTS + T-SHIRTS + SPRAY PAINT + STICKERS + MORE

Preview Night: 25th June – 6.00 – 10.00pm – (BYOB)

From spray cans and paint rollers, to bolt cutters and balaclavas;
This collection of found objects sheds light on to the underworld subculture of Graffiti. Examining the tools used by artists to gain forced access to their chosen canvas and execute their often risky, and illegal work.

These assortments of items are individually and collectively symbolic of a vastly impactful art movement that has spread throughout the entire globe. First recognised as ‘Graffiti’ at the start of the Hip Hop movement in the working class areas of New York in the early 1970s, the movement has since grown to an astronomical scale, and is now widely accepted by the masses.

However, beneath the glossy murals and the priceless stenciled paintings, lie the routes of real graffiti. In displaying these inanimate objects the artist has given these items a sense of significance; making apparent the preparations of an underworld contemporary art movement.

This exhibition is dedicated to the loving memory of:

Joe Sparks: 2nd September 1986 – March 2018
+
Zac Winter: 28th November 1992 – March 2018

Affected by detention, photography exhibition at SPACE, Bristol

Affected by Detention: Photography exhibition

See It From Her+ presents:
Affected by Detention
-Photography work by 3 individuals who have all been
affected in different ways by immigration and detention.

The work will be accompanied by the words and voices of those from the project.

FREE

18th – 24th June 12pm – 5.30pm

**PREVIEW on 18th JUNE 7PM**

The UK is the only country in Europe that doesn’t have a time limit on detention.

In the UK, the Government detains approximately 30,000 people for immigration purposes per year.

In 2017, 28,244 people left detention. 44% were removed from the UK, which means that 56% of those detained were released back into the community, their detention having served no purpose.

What goes on in our immigration system and inside detention is often kept very hidden and those with experience are not always able to speak out.

Those involved all had very different approaches to the work they made and responses to their individual experience of immigration and detention. This exhibition is a chance to hear directly those who have been impacted.
