Once a year the Spike Island community – staff, artists, designers, creative businesses and arts organsations based here – come together for what we call the Annual Event. This evening is an opportunity to share and celebrate the successes of the last 12 months, and earlier this month we heard great stories from individuals and groups about what they've been up to in 2012.
One of the highlights of the event was a humourous contribution from Lucy Odlin, a member of our front of house team who joined us in January. Framed as “an excerpt of the year in conversations” between gallery invigilators and visitors, her presentation covered everything from Haroon Mirza's foam to Ivan Seal's audio pieces.
We thought she summed up the year with wit and pith, so here's the recording to remind you of (or introduce you to) Spike Island's 2012 exhibitions!
