Background to LOT

LOT is a collaborative group consisting of artists and curators. LOT is located in a building in the heart of Broadmead on the corner of Penn Street and Broadweir.

The old Poundstretcher building has been provided by The Bristol Alliance, represented by Hartnell Taylor Cook estate agents as the host venue for a series of projects taking place over the next year.

LOT the building is approximately 2500sq ft over three floors of prime retail space. It will house two floors of exhibition spaces with excellent natural light as well as space suitable for controlled lighting conditions. On the top floor LOT has plans for some production space for selected artists on a residency basis (Adam Dade & Sonya Hanney will be the first to use these spaces), office and kitchen space and a reading room / library of art publications.

LOT is an opportunity to draw together a number of people based in Bristol and develop a series of contemporary art projects.

Working as an independent group with links to all the major art institutions in the city as well as broad spectrum of National and International contacts, LOT aims to develop a series of exhibitions, events and commissions over the period of one year.

By forming a collective LOT pools experience knowledge and contacts, placing itself deliberately between institutions, providing a professional yet informal arena in which to make new work and show the work of peers.
