An Installation by Dominique Hill

Opening Event with music & drinks: Thursday 28th June, 7 – 10pm
Continues: Saturday 30th June and Sunday 1st July, 12 – 5pm

Part of the Easton Arts Trail 2012.
An exhibition of paintings inspired by and uniquely displayed in, Stapleton Road Tavern.

Dominique Hill is a Bristol based artist who rejects the traditional notions of painting and its display. Through the staging and display of her work she endeavors to champion painting as well as highlighting its performativity. Her work aims to sublimate the traditional protocol of addressing an art space.

"With the creation and display of my paintings I aim to challenge and question the conventions of both painting itself and its display, as well as exploit, and to some extent exacerbate, the problems housed within the traditional gallery space."

For this exhibition Dominique will take over the unconventional environment of Stapleton Road Tavern. Infiltrating and utilising its architectural idiosyncracies, her work  will challenge and confront; asking what it is that a painting and gallery space can and should be.
For the opening night the Tavern will play host to an evening event inviting guests to interact with the paintings in an unfamiliar way.
