Rhys & Hannah Present

We are two artists who recently graduated from the Fine Art School in Bristol, and our collaboration is called Rhys & Hannah Present. After exhibiting in New Contemporaries 2007 we were inspired to find a way to promote young and emerging Bristol-based artists, and to make the work of other artists from outside Bristol more visible in the city. Using temporary sites, Rhys & Hannah Present organised ...a Birthday Art Show and what we'd buy if you buy (our t-shirts). After this we obtained a short-term lease on an old shop in the heart of Bristol's commercial centre, where we have subsequently organised The Big Art Draw and Clouds, and hosted an exchange with the Manchester-based exhibition exchange o p e n e n d e d. Upcoming projects include: the group show Clap Your Hands Say; a solo show by Kieran Brown; a show of two recent graduates who have been awarded studio space on site; and we'll be hosting and supporting the exhibition ideas of our two interns.
