The Making of Crimes of Passion -Photographic Exhibition


Crimes of Passion was put together over 3 weeks of chaos and creativity, with the galleries full of paint fumes, plastic, scaffolding, stencils, music and collaboration.  Throughout this a group of students from the University of the West of England's photography degree course documented the process from blank walls to the break-dancing on the opening night.  These are being put together into a resource for the new Museum of Bristol, but now we're offering you a chance to follow the development of the show.

Opens Friday 17th April and runs until 28th May
In the Fedden Gallery in the basement of the RWA
Free entry
