What’s on show

 All things being equal…
Numerous questions have been posed around our opening exhibition, the most evocative of these being, “How will I be represented in the museum?” See for yourself.

TSIATSIA – searching for connection
Acclaimed artist, El Anatsui, reinterprets and challenges the traditional trope of sculptural practice to invoke a multi-layered, sensory reimagining of our material world.

Still Here Tomorrow to High Five You Yesterday… 
The exhibition explores the different ways in which artists, performers, writers and architects tackle the complexities inherent within the dual concepts of Utopia and progress. Exploring emergent spaces that exist both in the realm of the mind and in the physical unknown, the exhibition points critically to the mirages, metaphors, stereotypes and matrixes of progress.
