Motorcade/FlashParade is an artist-run project space in Bristol, providing a platform for emerging artists and hosting an annual programme of exhibitions and events. Initiated in 2009 it is fast evolving into an exciting test space for contemporary practice, supporting and encouraging the development of new work and fresh ideas. 

Our programme includes INCUBE8, offering 8 artists their first solo show, a summer residency, a mini-residency and exhibition for our team of volunteers, a competition for aspiring curators, participation in BV Open Studios supporting BV Studio artists with whom we share a building, as well as our annual National Open. 
We also consider proposals for exhibitions and welcome applications all year round. 

We host a range of activities to support contemporary practice, foster peer learning and invite participation from a wider audience.

We are a test space, a laboratory, a launch pad and a stage.

INCUBE8, the Summer Residency, the curating competition and the mini-residency and exhibition for our team of volunteers are all supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
