Arnolfini - est 1961

A three-day celebration of the visual arts across the two cities.

Now in its second year, the Art Weekender is produced by Situations in partnership with over 30 arts venues, artist-led groups and arts producers. The Weekender brings together exhibitions, one-off special events, artists’ talks, family activities and trails, public artworks and performances by outstanding contemporary artists in multiple locations, with free access to just about every venue and project.

Come and explore the art in the heart of the West – visit artists’ studios, follow a trail to the unexpected and see the two cities through new eyes.

For a list of Arnolfini events that are part of the Art Weekender, see here.

From the transformation of a ruined church through a continuous day and night performance to a winding limestone path through Bristol’s Clifton Downs, from birdsong to surprising interventions and encounters across the cities’ museums, the Weekender offers a rich and varied programme of experiences over three days.
