Transmission: Simon and Tom Bloor
Simon and Tom Bloor's works and projects focus on our often ambivalent relation to the structures of public space. They are currently developing large-scale public works in Cambridge and London and have been commissioned by Arnolfini Gallery and Bristol City Council as part of the Primary Capital Programme. Recent solo exhibitions have taken place at the Whitechapel Gallery (2013), South London Gallery (2011), and Modern Art Oxford (2010). They were born in Birmingham in 1973 and are amongst the founding directors of Eastside Projects, Birmingham.
Following their lecture, join Simon & Tom Bloor for drinks at Site Gallery. Chat to them and the Site Gallery team about the residency experience, and explore some of the sculptural objects that were tested and made during their Platform residency, Planning for Play. You will also see a few of their inspirations, such as vintage books on playscapes and images of Sheffield's own play architecture.
