JEREMY DELLER’S CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED VENICE BIENNALE EXHIBITION ON TOUR IN BRISTOL

Jeremy Deller: English Magic
Until Sun 21 September,
Bristol Museum & Art Gallery

This magical assembly of large-scale mural paintings, drawings, photographs, film and historical artefacts reflects Deller’s interest in the diverse nature of British culture, its people, icons, folklore, history and politics. Expect references to tax evasion, the Iraq war and Ziggy Stardust.

Material from Bristol’s own collections, including paintings of the Bristol Riots in 1831, have been selected by Deller and will sit alongside the exhibition’s eclectic references to workers’ strikes, hen harriers, Land Rovers, marching bands, hand axes and Tony Blair, giving the exhibition a Bristol edge.

English Magic was commission by the British Council.  The UK tour is supported by the Art Fund. Free entry.
