West of England Visual Arts Alliance: ‘EP46’ Commission by The Brunswick Club

The West of England Visual Arts Alliance presents ‘EP64’, the grand final performance of the Ephemeral Project. This last segment of the 64-part series is set to be a special two-night show, commissioned and produced by the Brunswick Club at the Arnolfini.

EP64 is a wild improvisation combo with variable geometry initiated by raw vocalist Dali de Saint Paul. Since 2016, it has involved a wide range of musicians and visual artists. All artists have been invited back to collaborate one last time in a series of improvised performances taking place over two days.

Alongside this special event, The Brunswick Club will organise a daytime workshops programme (on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th May) hosted by the Arnolfini as part of the West of England Visual Arts Alliance (WEVAA) programme, with details to be announced soon.



Participants include:

Dali de Saint Paul, Dan Johnson, Laura Phillips, Ossia, Silver Waves, Miguel Prado (Harrga, Nzumbe), Robin Stewart (Giant Swan), Ben Vince, Paddy Shine (GNOD), Jesse Webb (GNOD), Agathe Max, Copper Sounds, Lizi Hoar, Matt Loveridge (MXLX), Tom Bugs, Guest (Jabu), Matthew Grigg, Sarah James, Deej Dariwhal (Thought Forms), John Scott (Stereocilia), Matt Davies, Yoshino Shihigara (Yama Warashi), Conrad Singh (Evil Usses), Leon Ray Boydon (Evil Usses), Joe Kelly (Wendy Miasma), Andrew Neil Hayes (Run Logan Run), Annie Gardiner (Hysterical Injury), Aonghus Reidy (Ocean Floor), Melanie Clifford, Susannah Claiden + more.

This event is made possible through the West of England Visual Arts Alliance (WEVAA) and is supported by the Arts Council England. WEVAA is a consortium partnership of nine organisations co-lead by Spike Island and Visual Arts South West and including the Brunswick Club, Bath Spa School of Art, Bristol City Council, Creative Youth Network, Culture Weston, North Somerset Council and UWE Bristol. This alliance is delivering a 3-year programme of activity with the aim of supporting visual arts progression in the region, with the collective vision for the visual arts community in Bristol and the West of England to become more progressive, sustainable and inclusive by 2024. Increasing the number and quality of commissions for visual artists in the West of England is a central objective of the programme and the Brunswick Club is leading on the artist-led commissioning programme for artists, of which this event is part.
