Future Perfect

Future Perfect is an ambitious two-year programme of public art commissions for Hengrove Ward, a residential area in south Bristol, in which governance is extended to members of the Hengrove community. Curated and developed by curator/commissioner team Theresa Bergne and Jes Fernie, the theme for the programme is the future; a notional, fantastical future which embraces extraordinary possibilities and dreams and consists of three commissions by artists with international reputations: Martino Gamper, Nils Norman and David Thorpe. 

Future Perfect explores the transformative potential of art; how socially engaged projects can inspire as well as inform and affect the way that people view their lives, their neighbourhood and their position in their community. The programme offers many opportunities for individuals and groups in Hengrove to participate, through workshops, trips and talks.

It is commissioned by Bristol City Council and is the first public art programme to be funded through a Neighbourhood Partnership
