Site Festival 1st-30th April
Site 2015 programme cover

The Site Festival has moved to April this year with a wide spectrum of exhibitions and events spread throughout the month. The Open Studios will still be taking place in the two middle weekends of May.

The festival has its roots in contemporary visual arts but over the years there has been a blurring of boundaries with many cross overs with music, film, poetry, and theatre. This is reflected within the five week programme which kicks off with The Voyeurs, Brickhouse, Top Nice/Pathfinder and Andy Holden’s collaborative installation with the Bohman Brothers and Richard Thomas in John Street and the Goods Shed. Will Gregory Moog Ensemble will beheadlining in Week 4 for the Resound weekend of experimental music.

The Site Festival launch is on Saturday 4 April 6pm till late. Brickhouse will be presenting an exhibition of new work by Andy Holden and there'll be many other exhibitions and events taking place on the night in town culminating with the 'Top Nice/Pathfinder ' after party through to the early hours...

For this two-part exhibition Andy Holden will present two collaborations which both expound on the impact of technology on the landscape and mental ecology of rural Britain; firstly with the implementation of the enclosures act in the 1830's and secondly with the introduction of broadband to the provinces at the end of the twentieth century.

Andy Holden is an artist based in Bedford, UK, whose work spans a number of divergent mediums; from large scale sculpture and installation, to painting, pop music, lectures and performances, films and theatrical productions. Recent exhibitions have included Towards a Unified Theory of MI!MS at Zabludowicz Collection, London and Spike Island, Bristol (2013-14), Chewy Cosmos Thingly Time at Kettles Yard Cambridge (2011), and Art Now: Andy Holden, Tate Britain, 2010. Performances have Lecture on Nesting in collaboration with his father Peter Holden for Performa 13, New York, Brief Interviews with Hideous Men at ICA London, 2012, and a tour of the UK performing at only artist-run spaces with his band The Grubby Mitts in 2014.
