We are delighted to say that our exhibition of Nam June Paik opened this weekend to fantastic reviews in the press, and lots of visitors despite the heavy snow fall and freezing conditions.

Our Front of House staff were particularly excited to welcome Chris Martin, the lead singer from Coldplay, into the galleries on Saturday. He took time out to visit FACT as the band were playing a special gig for homeless charity Crisis in Liverpool at the weekend. According to our slightly star-struck Information Assistant, Chris was very interested in Laser Cone - Nam June Paik's amazing laser installation we have displayed in Gallery 1.
