Jack Lewdjaw: To Live One Thousand Years in One Poem

12 – 5pm

Preview 27 October, 6 – 8pm

36 Gallery

To Live a Thousand Years in One Poem draws on the format of the artist’s manifesto in an attempt to understand something about the future. Bristol-based artist Jack Lewdjaw’s exhibition draws a parallel between the proposed futures of this speculative framework with that of post-war civic architecture, whose remnants are still present in our city environments. 

Jack Lewdjaw (b.1990, Loughborough) is an artist and educator who lives and works in Bristol. He is Co-Director of the gallery East Bristol Contemporary and teaches regularly at both Bristol School of Art and EBC Schools (inc. EBC Day School). He was also a participant of Syllabus V: a peer-led alternative learning programme run in partnership with Wysing Arts Centre (Cambridge); Eastside Projects (Birmingham); Spike Island (Bristol); The Newbridge Project (Newcastle); Iniva (London); and S1 Artspace (Sheffield).
