12 Days Of Xmas – 2008!

12-days-of-xmas-500-2

This was one of the best events of last year, so great news to hear it’s going to be happening again. Venue still TBC, but the rumours for it are as good as you’d expect from the Steal from Work guys.

The details on it, so far, are as follows…

Once again Steal From Work have crow-barred their way in-between the mince pies, mulled wine and bumper Radio Times to cram 70 of the world’s most loved & loathed contemporary urban artists together under one leaky roof for 12 festive fuelled days.

Last year was the first 12 Days of Xmas exhibition. It was held in Bristol’s Old Bridewell Police Station, and was hugely successful, attracting over 4,000 visitors over the 12 days. It has gone down in history as one of Bristol’s best ever art shows and certainly kick started a huge interest in Street Art in the city. As well as proving that you don’t need to be in an established, white walled gallery to show brilliant art and attract the crowds.

This year we’ve assembled art from 70 local, national and international artists, once again mixing some of the scenes leading lights with up and coming artists to provide a massive range of work available to buy at prices to suit all purses or simply just to gaze at…

UPDATE: The venue’s now confirmed as the same place as the ‘Not A Penny’ show back in May, that old bike shop, 15 -19 Stokes Croft, Bristol, BS1 3PY. Other venues were rumoured over the last few months, but weren’t to be in the end. Top venue for it though, and hopefully the flippers won’t form such a big queue outside now in these straightened times.
