Art Weekender: Quilt Cowboy

October 30, 2015 12:00 pm-October 31, 2015 5:00 pm

Alexander Stevenson presents a new commission for the Bristol and Bath Art Weekender. Quilt Cowboy is inspired by the Museum’s collection of quilts and textiles, which Alex suggests work much in the same way as the Museum itself— piecing together fragments of history to tell a story about America.

The piece will be on display in the Museum’s Central Hall alongside a short film by the artist. View a teaser for the film here.

Art Weekender – Bristol & Bath is a three-day celebration of the visual arts across the two cities taking place from Friday 30 October to Sunday 1 November. 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 across the two cities.
