Documents, Alternatives: a symposium of artistic process and practice
2:30pm - 6:30pm

The documentation of ephemeral artwork, works made to be transient, changeable and un-fixed, is often problematic for the intent and premise of creation as it aligns itself with a particular moment, place and viewpoint in time. Lens-based methods are mostly relied upon to communicate actuality and happening and to fix the un-fixed memory of the artwork, and this is part of that problem. Effectively, this type of documentary device works in opposition to the concept of the artwork, cementing into a fragmentary history when all it wants is to be fleeting in its temporality. The lens-made recording tends to generalise vision and, by extension, it does not fully communicate the experience of ‘being there’ and present. This is problematic for artwork whose very premise is to be transient and time-based, and for which direct experience is a priority.
‘Documents, Alternatives (#3)’ is an exhibition that includes time-based works that rely on performative process and created experience, which aims to resolve this issue by making the document and artwork reflexive. In doing this it acknowledges their need for change so that they remain continuous and in process through staging a practical and thought provoking visual discussion. The symposium accompanies this exhibition at BSAD, and acts in response to process with artistic practice and the experience of the artwork. It situates a series of opportunities for the experience of process through a structure of colloquialism adjacent to the exhibition, to open the nature of artistic process to critical debate. To enable a dialogue about process (as that exhibited and that discussed) informed by both academic and creative domains, symposium speakers are the artists with work in the accompanying exhibition.
The opening of the exhibition follows the symposium, to which delegates are warmly invited.

Friday 20th April - Soul StruttersFree entry - First come first serve.Drinking and Dancing doors open at 5pm with 2-4-1 on cocktails until 8pm.To guarantee entry: Guestlist or Table reservations - https://www.walcothousebath.com/contact/Main room: The Soul Strutters from 9pm. DJ from 11pm-lateDue to high demand the Soul Strutters are back at Walcot House. The Soul Strutters are a collective of professional musicians from Bristol who love nothing more than performing specially handpicked songs from the golden era of Funk, Soul, Disco and Rare Groove.They are widely regarded as one of the busiest Funk and Soul bands going.Formed at last-minute in October 2012 for a cocktail function, The Soul Strutters gelled immediately after the first 4-bars of ‘Use me Up’ by Bill Withers was performed. From then on, the band were playing the circuit of live music venues near enough every weekend around the Bristol and surrounding area to the present day, solely through word of mouth.The group was founded on a mutual love and respect for the music they grew up on and have always wanted to perform, and from the sheer smiles on their faces from start to finish, it’s clear that the passion and enjoyment radiates through to the audience.By the end of 2016, Soul Strutters have completed over 900 gigs and over 200 weddings all over Britain, with 2017 proving to be their busiest year yet.Unlike many wedding and corporate function bands, the Soul Strutters formed absolutely organically, with the single intention of jamming together for fun. Since then, they have become a full-time band gigging at a variety of special events, including weddings, anniversaries, birthday celebrations and charity events.With a professional attitude towards all bookings you can be assured that the Soul Strutters will surpass your requirements, and put on a great show for your event, bringing all of their enthusiasm and passion to your stage. Whether it is a small intimate pub gig, a background entertainment in a restaurant, a live music venue or a wedding, it won’t be one that your guests will forget, and you’ll struggle to find a live performance tighter than The Strutters!- Eric Mylod-Okafu (Bass and vocals)- Jack Baldus (Keyboards, talkbox)- James Arbery (Guitars)- Barney Sage (Drums)

Pencil To Paint: Apr - Jun 2018
18th April - 13th June

“I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck.”
Francis Bacon on Matthew Smith (1909-1992)
For most of us, our relationship with art begins with a line. We take a pencil or a crayon and delineate our idea. In our enthusiasm, we may even attempt to colour it in. In the experience of many, that attempt leads only to disappointment. We know that a painting is more than just a coloured-in drawing, but how do we do it? What exactly is the difference?
This course explores the gulf between drawing and painting and then seeks to provide a bridge between the two disciplines. Beginning with simple pencil studies, we will then develop our work in both charcoal and ink, gaining confidence in our abilities, before embarking on five weeks of painting in bold colour.
This course is open to all-comers and is ideal for beginners or those who wish to take their art in a new direction. 
The theme for this particular 8 week Pencil To Paint course will be abstraction and we will look at how form, gesture and emotion all play their part in successful picture-making, regardless of genre.
Topics will include:
Line, measurement and proportion
Colour: theory and mixing
Tables and chairs and a roll of newsprint paper are provided. Please bring a drawing board, paper or pad and your preferred drawing media. Materials required for sessions using colour will be discussed nearer the time.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small donation.
16:30 - 18:00
Wednesdays:  18, 25 April; 02, 09, 23, 30 May; 06, 13 June (8 x 1.5 hour sessions)
