About

Born in Oxford, Edward Bruce studied Fine Art at Newcastle Polytechnic-Northumbria University, where he won the Alcan Sculpture Prize, and at the Glasgow School of Art. After his degree he lived in London where he exhibited with the Glue Factory group making installations in disused industrial buildings. He moved to Liverpool in 2003 where he created Ringing Banners, an installation and sonic performance in Liverpool Cathedral that formed part of the 2008 European Capital of Culture arts programme. While a member of Bridewell Studios he curated group shows and exhibited in Liverpool Biennial Independents. His solo exhibitions include his collaborative performance and sound work Allied and Amalgamated which was performed at the Pipe Factory, and at Tramway, Glasgow in 2018. His sound art has been presented at a number of events and platforms including at Games for May run by Interview Room 11, Edinburgh and at Tramway, Glasgow as part of an exhibition of recent post-graduate students; and the art radio station Radiophrenia. He lives and works in Glasgow.
