Spike Island

Summer Exhibitions Reading List

Want to learn more about the ideas and processes behind our current exhibitions Pull Everything Out and The Struggle Against Ourselves?

These books have been selected by artists Ciara Phillips and Jesse Jones with input from Spike Island's director Helen Legg and curator Marie-Anne McQuay. Some are texts that have directly influenced the artists, while others give an introduction to the cultural and historical movements that inform the work.

Visitors are invited to peruse these materials in the Resource Area during gallery opening hours. Come Alive! The Spirited Art of Sister Corita by Julie Ault is also available to purchase from Reception for £15.99.
