Alice Bradshaw is an artist and curator based in Halifax. Her practice focuses on everyday objects, materials and processes, often site-responsively and across various mediums. Mass-produced, anonymous objects are often rendered dysfunctional caricatures of themselves, addressing concepts of purpose and futility.
Recent exhibitions and festivals include Contents May Vary at Red Gallery in Hull, A Room of Words at South Square Gallery in Bradford, The Medium is the Message at Gallery Lambton in Ontario Canada, Awkward at AVA Gallery in Tennessee, Toronto Urban Film Festival and Portobello Film Festival and Videoholica in Varna, Bulgaria.
Alice also co-directs Contents May Vary, an artist collective based in Manchester who organise and curate exhibitions mainly in alternative non-gallery spaces and also run an independent publication.
