Gasworks presents the first UK solo exhibition and a major new commission by Bristol-based artist Libita Clayton.

Libita Clayton is the third artist to take part in the Freelands Artist Programme at Gasworks, a three-year programme for emerging artists based outside of London. Made possible thanks to a generous grant from the Freelands Foundation, the programme combines a three-month residency with a solo exhibition and series of public events at Gasworks. The previous participants were Jamie Crewe and Rachal Bradley.

The exhibition is commissioned and produced by Gasworks in partnership with Spike Island, Bristol.


Libita Clayton is a British-Namibian artist based in Bristol. She graduated with a BA (Hons) in Print & Digital Media from Wimbledon College of Art, University of the Arts London in 2009. Recent presentations include: 4717, RCA/LUX, Dyson Gallery, Royal College of Art, London (2018); History Lessons: Fluid Records, South London Gallery, London; and the Diaspora Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale (all 2017).
