Museums and galleries across the UK are subject to temporary closures. Those that remain open have safety measures in place, please remember to check venue guidelines before visiting.

Artists Heather Agyepong, Jessa Fairbrother and Lua Ribeira present new interventions responding to Bristol’s art collections.

Heather Agyepong’s performance photographs offer a post-colonial perspective on the Grand Tour paintings from the 18th century.

Jessa Fairbrother’s images are among the Pre-Raphaelite paintings and modern French art. She presents self-authored contemporary narratives alongside the historic images of women by men.

Lua Ribeira is interested in the idea of being transported – by synthetic, aesthetic or religious means. She alludes to angels and demons in her work. Her photographs, belonging to various series, will be shown amongst the angels and demons of Solario and Bellini and the abstract canvases in the galleries.

These displays are part of Bristol Photo Festival.
