A compact, illustrated history of Arnolfini published to coincide with its major refurbishment 2003 – 2005
Arnolfini is one of Europe’s leading centres for the contemporary arts. It was established in Bristol in 1961. Today its programme covers visual arts, live art and performance, music, sound, dance, cinema, literature and poetry and a thriving interaction programme of tours, talks and events. Arnolfini’s move to an imposing 19 Century warehouse, Bush House, in 1975 proved a catalyst in attracting other businesses to the then neglected dockside, the revitalised waterfront is a focal point for Bristol’s social and cultural life. With an incisive text by Phil Johnson and fascinating images, this book presents a history of Arnolfini and Bush House and explains how the 2005 refurbishment transformed both for the twenty-first Century.
