We are sorry to say that our March Art Bar has been postponed due to the current situation with coronavirus. We hope that by making this decision in advance that it avoids uncertainty and hope to hear from our guest Katie Davies in the coming months. Thank you as always for supporting Art Bar and we will keep you updated on April’s talk nearer the time.
Art Bar Bristol
For our March Art Bar we are joined by Katie Davies, a video artist who explores the construction of identities, and their reflections and manipulations. Nationalism, violence and democracy form a central critique for her videos and installations, often focusing upon individuals and communities whose identities are dictated by the state; their agency to self-identify snared between political agendas and Sovereign violence.
Katie was nominated for the 2016 Paul Hamlyn Award and was a Jury member for the International competition, Short Film Festival Oberhausen, 2018. She has exhibited nationally and internationally including FACT Liverpool 2018, Kassel Dokfest, Bratislava International Film Festival and Oberhausen International Film Festival 2017 & 2015, Sarajevo Film Festival 2015, Border Visions, Connecticut, USA 2012 and The Istanbul Biennial 2009. She has contributed to several publications and her writing on practice-led research has been included in US and British publications.
