Arnolfini is Bristol’s International Centre for Contemporary Arts located on the harbourside in the heart of the city.
Woven into the fabric of Bristol since 1961, Arnolfini is a pioneer of interdisciplinary contemporary arts, presenting an ambitious programme of visual art, performance, dance, film and music. Housed in a Grade II listed, accessible building at the heart of the harbourside, Arnolfini is an inspiring public space for contemporary arts and learning, welcoming half a million visitors each year and offering an innovative, inclusive and engaging experience for all.
An internationally-renowned institution, Arnolfini supports and develops work by living artists, investigating their influences and aspirations, and celebrates the heritage and wide-reaching impact of the organisation by sharing a 60 year archive of exhibition slides, publications and artist book collection with the public and artists, inspiring new commissions.
In 2019, Arnolfini relaunched its major exhibition programme with Still I Rise. Arnolfini is an independent organisation and proud to be a part of the University of the West of England, Bristol, supported by Arts Council England and the Ashley Clinton Barker-Mills Trust.
