Date: 4 June, 2002 until 6 July, 2002
Curator: Eddie Chambers
Organiser: Eddie Chambers

A selection of paintings by Denzil Forrester, drawn from two decades of the artist’s practice. The exhibition, which was accompanied by a catalogue, took place at a temporary gallery, in the centre of Bristol, near Bristol Bridge, 4 Victoria Street.  The exhibition’s dates were 4 June - 6 July 2002. The building was a near-derelict space, offered to independent Bristol-based curator, Eddie Chambers for use as an exhibition space, by Bristol City Council. The space, on two floors, once cleaned up and made into a temporary gallery, was used for exhibitions by Avtarjeet Singh Danjhal and Eugene Palmer; Medina Hammad, and Denzil Forrester. These exhibitions were funded by Bristol City Council and South West Arts. Each of the exhibitions came with catalogues. 4 Victoria Street was also, during 2002, used as a studio by Anthony Key, to make the bricks made of gypsum plaster (often referred to as plaster of Paris).These bricks were subsequently used in Key’s Walcott Chapel installation, Anthony Key: Walcot Chapel, Bath, 24 September - 19 October 2002.
