On 16th October 2012, BEAM// (Bristol Exchange of Arts & Music) are bringing a slice of Bristol’s burgeoning street level art, music and film to Brooklyn. BEAM// will be running a day and night event at the Knitting Factory in Williamsburg, featuring world renowned street artists Inkie and Nick Walker, music from Scott Hendy (Malachai/Boca 45), plus the legendary Bristol DJ and long time NY resident DJ Milo. There will also be representation from Brooklyn in the form of DJ Ursula 1000 and live acts The Good People and Archie Pelago.
The event will include film screenings, visuals and art to give a flavour of the creative output from Bristol, UK featuring work from award winning music documentary filmmaker Mark Kidel and a selection of music promos and visuals from John Minton
Much like Brooklyn itself, the city of Bristol has long been regarded as a place of innovation, radical creativity, and independence. From the street art of Banksy, Nick Walker, Will Barras, Inkie to the groundbreaking, distinctive and original music of Massive Attack and Portishead, and the de-facto ‘home’ of movements such as dubstep and drum & bass, this is all drawn from a multi cultural and fiercely independent city. Bristol is recognised the world over as a leader, not a follower in original and underground culture.
