Clouds private view photos v new Studio Holders & Interns

click the picture below for
Clouds Private view photographs.

We also have our studio holders and interns sorted. Why is
this important? Well, all 4 are our favourite recent graduates
from Fine Art or Art and Visual Culture at Univeristy West
of England. Also, each will get the opportunity to use the
space. The studio holders will be awarded with a show in
October, whilst the intern boys will be using the space to
organise a variety of shows/events/projects come the end
of September, early October.

Braço de Ferro residency!

Friday 18th July - Sunday 29th July
Meet Braço de Ferro drinks Saturday 19th July (probably cups of tea)
4pm - 6pm

Next up we have a residency. For the next few weeks, as
part of the mass migration of Portugues artists and Portuguese
art to Spike Island for the Part-ilha exhibition, Rhys & Hannah Present
will host Braço de Ferro (BdF), an independent small press publisher
based in Portugal and run by the artist Isabel Carvalho and designer
Pedro Nora. BdF's editions focus on book-form artistic projects, artist's
books, catalogues, monographies, critical essays in the fields of
contemporary thinking, art and design.

We've leant them some tables, chairs, a printer, perhaps even
the odd pritt stick, some bikes and some internet and they're
going to use the residency to make a publication. And, over
the next few weeks, our doors will be open and they'll greet
you with a Portuguese smile.

blog for more information on what they do.
