Spike Island is an international centre for the development of contemporary art and design. By offering a high quality, challenging programme of exhibitions and events, and honing a dynamic and critically engaged community of artists and designers, the centre strives to put art at the centre of society.

From 6 October – 9 December, French visual artist and philosopher Benoît Maire’s first solo exhibition will be on show, titled ‘Thebes’ and featuring more than 90 works ranging from paintings and sculptures to furniture, everyday objects and films that explore French philosopher and sociologist François Lyotard’s concept of the ‘differend’.
