Spike Island and Picture This to Merge

In April Spike Island will merge with Picture This, taking on its AV equipment hire, production and post-production services. A new department, Spike Film and Video, will be run by former Picture This staff members Ali Roche and Andy Moss.

Throughout its 20 year history, Picture This has made a major contribution to moving image practice, commissioning and producing works that have been shown in national and international venues, enabling artist and organisations to exhibit film and video to the highest standards, and publishing new critical perspectives on the field.

Picture This has been a valued tenant, partner and peer of Spike Island for many years and we regret that it will no longer exist as an individual organisation. However, moving image has always been a strong part of Spike Island’s programme and we are committed to continuing and further developing the distinctive work that it has done.

Two upcoming Spike Island exhibitions have been commissioned and produced by Picture This; Pley, a new film by Cara Tolmie, opens on 13 April, and a group show curated by artist James Richards opens on 6 July.

Full details of Spike Film and Video will be available on our website from mid-April. For more information about services, please contact Andy Moss. For press queries, please contact Anna Searle Jones.
