Situations has invited Theaster Gates to stage his first UK public project in Bristol as part of Bristol 2015 European Green Capital arts programme.

We believe in the capacity of artists to imagine new visions of the future for our environment and to sustain and enrich our lives. One of the foremost American artists of his generation, Theaster Gates is renowned for his acts of transformation, such as the re-activation and redemption of abandoned spaces and the redeployment of disused objects and materials. His project for Bristol will transform, repurpose and hear this city through the temporary occupation of a very special space.

Look out for our first announcement mid-July
