Tempting Failure is a platform for Live Art, Noise Art and Performance Art. Created to raise the profile of artists who choose to actively engage with risk, transgression or failure within their practice, find it hard to be programmed in a supportive manner, or as established artists would like to challenge preconceived notions of their artwork or a given enquiry.|
Now in its third year, TF returns home to Bristol with a week of free events across the city, that culminates in this paid-entry two night event at our spiritual home of The Island. Here we will plunge our audience into a beautiful programme of performances that will consume the senses & the engage the mind. This event is will feature approximately 40 artists over Friday 7th & Saturday 8th November in and around the former police cells, isolation spaces, exercise yard, showers and more of this uniquely exciting venue!
Among our featured artists are: Joke Lanz, Hancock & Kelly, Katy Baird, FK Alexander, Rachel Parry, Thomas John Bacon, Chelsea Coon, Tom Pope and many more. Visit: www.temptingfailure.com for a full programme.
