We have again teamed-up with our friends across the water at Spike Island to invite you to Bristol Art Night on Friday 17 February, for a preview of the exhibitions opening at both galleries.
Admission to both previews is free, with no need to book. It is around a 10-minute walk between Arnolfini and Spike Island via Prince Street Bridge.
For further details of each exhibition, please follow the links below.
We all look forward to welcoming you to Bristol’s Art Night and would love to see your pictures from the evening, please tag @SpikeIsland #SpikeIsland and @ArnolfiniArts #Arnolfini in your socials.

The archive blog is a digital display showing the history of Garry Fabian Miller’s long-established working relationship with Arnolfini. It brings together archive records from the planning and display of Arnolfini’s 1997 exhibition, along with press releases and reviews, and written correspondence that were exchanged between the artist and Arnolfini.
