This is the second solo exhibition for artist Michele Curtis, whose series of intricate drawings The Seven Saints of St Pauls was displayed in 2015.  Bristol Beats & Bass at the Island gallery shows new work by Curtis depicting the sound systems of the 1980s and ‘90s that formed the basis of the distinctive Bristol sound. The exhibition is part of a three-year-long series Iconic Black Bristolians. It concludes in 2018, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the city’s legendary St Pauls Carnival.
