What's On

Today Tuesday 17 January 2017

The galleries are currently closed for install. We are delighted to present our new programme for the start of 2017 which begins on 24 Jan with an exploration of the art gallery as a space of creation as well as for presentation, with a focus on live and performance art. Central to the season will be archival presentations in the foyer as we break with the convention of presenting an unchanging exhibition of visual art, providing instead a space for artists’ to develop work during residencies, exploring the boundaries between audience and performer through the presentation of work-in-progress.

We are also very excited to host In Between Time 2017 and the popular Dune Series continues in the Cafe Bar.

Cafe Bar and Bookshop will be open as normal. Please check the opening times page for latest info.
