August Summer Schedule
August Summer Schedule
With summer In full swing, why not take the time to check out what the art world has to offer? Here’s a look at five current displays that are sure to keep your month interesting!
Sculpture in the City
Take advantage of the sunny weather and wander the City’s public spaces to discover a brand-new selection of artworks by internationally acclaimed and emerging artists.
This year’s offerings include the likes of Do Ho Suh’s ambitious installation, Bridging Home, in which a to-scale replica of the traditional Hankok- style Korean House perches atop of Footway Bridge as if it landed there by fluke. You can also find Jennifer Steinkamp’s Botanic, which is a screening of animated flowers in a constant state of collision, blown by an unseen force.
This brilliant project demands a re-examination of our urban landscape and confronts us with new ways in which we can engage with public spaces.
Showing until: April 2020
Curated in-house by Roger Jeffrey, Space Odyssey is a visual and immersive exhibition using multiple projectors and unusual ambient sounds.
Warrington has played a significant role in all of Europe’s major space exhibitions for the past four and a half decades. The exhibition features real space hardware including the Solar Array Deployment Arm which has flown on the Hubble Space Telescope and has travelled 2,000,000,000 kilometres around the Earth. Also on display is a rare part of one of the four bi-stem booms that were used on Hubble’s first set of solar arrays; this item has orbited the earth for eight years.
Showing until: 21 September 2019
