Bradford Big Screen

A creative space to share your film, photography and creativity

Our Vision

Bradford UNESCO City of Film and Bradford City Council have teamed up to provide a new programme of events and content for the Bradford Big Screen. As well as providing national and local news, sport, arts, culture, entertainment and events, we want the screen to belong to the people of the city. If you have a film, photographs or other content to share with us then please get in touch. With 500,000 people on average passing by the screen each month it's a great opportunity. We're looking for content that enlightens, inspires, entertains, brings a smile to our faces — and make us proud to be from Bradford.

    Not Just Hockney art exhibition

    12:30 pmBradford's Big Screen

    NOT JUST HOCKNEY

    AN EXCITING EXHIBITION ON BRADFORD BIG SCREEN SHARING THE WORK OF HUNDREDS OF ARTISTS FROM ACROSS THE DISTRICT WITH VISITORS TO THE CITY. ON THE SCREEN EVERY DAY AT 1230

    Not Just Hockney is the brainchild of amateur arts enthusiast Colin Neville. The exhibition features work from painters, ceramists, textile and jewellery makers. Artists involved say the project gives them vital outdoor “gallery” space after harsh economic times have seen many local galleries closing. If you can't get down to the screen watch the exhibition here.

    November and December's exhibition - Artist's Choice

    Artists

    John Allcock (Painter – pastels, acrylic, mixed media)
    In 2017 I visited Malta, resulting in a series of pictures I titled ‘Malta and Beyond’, responding to that environment.   A similar thread of imagery also runs through my exploration of Pennine landscapes.  The word ‘beyond’ points towards questions about individual attainment, personal fulfilment, and transcendence.  You can view the ‘Malta and Beyond’ exhibition in Unit 9, South Square Centre, Thornton, Fridays and Saturdays, 10.30-3.30, throughout November 2020.

    Carolyn Mendelsohn (Photographer)
    I am a Bradford based artist, photographer, and filmmaker. My passion is my personal work - photographic and film work based on the lives of individuals and their stories.  Alongside this I work on personal portrait commissions, lifestyle and fashion. My art work is exhibited and published internationally. In January 2021 my series ‘Being Inbetween’ is in exhibition at the Impressions Gallery, Bradford.

    Richard O’Neill (Digital Artist)
    I am a digital artist specialising in contemporary travel art.  I’m inspired by mid-20th century travel art, but over time I think a few other influences have crept in as well. I like the bright, bold Pop Art style of work so there’s an element of that in there, too. My commissioned artwork images now include locations worldwide, but Yorkshire, my home, never fails to inspire my work.

    Catherine Slater (Textile Artist)
    I am a freelance artist working mainly with my own handmade felt. I use luxury fibres such as cashmere, alpaca and merino to create unique pieces of wearable art. The felt is very light in weight, which means I can make necklaces that are comfortable to wear and also make a big bold statement. Contact: cslaterdesigns@yahoo.co.uk

    Kerry Stoker (Contemporary Abstract Artist)
    A contemporary abstract artist I build layers both in paint and meaning, each equally critical for success, pouring colour, sometimes controlling the flow as it mixes and merges and out of which beautiful shapes and subtle veils of colour emerge. Working with these random marks I develop the image scraping, smudging, staining, drawing, collaging, printing, painting, revealing and concealing elements, until it becomes personally significant and visually engaging.

    Samantha Yates (Glass Artist)
    I make botanically inspired sculptural stained glass and work under the name Lil’ Rabbitfoot .  I am inspired by the idea we are genetically programmed to feel good when we connect with nature, and this connection can be as simple as stripping seeds of a stalk of grass to throw into the air.

    Bradford UNESCO City of Film, David Wilson said: “Some of the artists we are working with are well known but others are not and so we’re delighted to be supporting local creativity. The images and photographs of the work are stunning and will no doubt draw some real attention in City Park.”

    Not Just Hockney will run every day at 1230 on Bradford Big Screen. Six different artists will feature  bi-monthly.  For more see http://www.notjusthockney.info/
