For one night shift only, the bar is the work of art, the artist is the bartender, and the spectator is the punter.
10 artists will be building, installing, hosting, and running their own bars in Grand Union's brand new studio unit in Minerva Works for a classic Fierce end of year knees up. Expect unusual drinks, performances, costumes, music and dancing into the night.
The participating artists are: Rebecca Davies, China Dethcrash, Thomas Doherty & Jenkin Van Zyl, James Harris, KILN, Francesca Millican-Slater, Priya Mistry, Repeator, Emily Warner, Kaye Winwood and Aleks Wojtulewicz.
All bars will be cash only and drinks will vary.
Artists Behind Bars is an event concocted by Kitty Finer that brings together artists who share an interest in spontaneous structures of hospitality and the (part time) role of bar-tending; presented in collaboration with Fierce and Grand Union.
