Barfoot and Duggan, Exhibitions, Lists

Thank You



Thank you to everyone who came to the ‘There’s More To Life Than Lists’ exhibition. I especially want to say thank you to those who supported me by attending the private view and came from far and wide to see the show.

Barfoot and Duggan had amazing exposure for the exhibition, thank you to the Western Daily Press, the Bristol Evening Post, BBC Radio Bristol, Tom Bigwood of Bristol Community Radio, Venue and A-N Magazines.

603 people came through the doors, breaking Centrespace records. One man stayed for 4.5 hours, reading all the lists. People have been inspired to collect lists for us, one man is angry with the queen for not giving us her list (“she’s no queen!”) we sold 60 catalogs, had a great time setting the work up, and great fun taking it down. We both made hundreds of cups of tea for visitors and had countless interesting conversations.

It is fair to say that we were knackered afterward! Barfoot and Duggan have paused their Lightbox work for 2 weeks, I have been spending all possible time in the studio, ready to return to our hard work soon, refreshed and powerful. We are also thinking about our next art project/how to continue the list project.

If you have any lists you would like to donate, please email me!

I have photographs too! Some mine, some Nigel Barfoot’s (photographer extraordinaire) and some I am waiting on from a delightful freelance photographer who kindly took some snaps for us. I will be posting the rest of the pictures tomorrow, hang on
