Our next exhibition, Winter Sparks, opens 13 December with a unique opening event.

Be amongst the first people to view FACT's new exhibition, and experience a light and sound show originating from a network of electric sparks, interact with the dramatic charges from Tesla coils, and explore the mysteries of the Wilberforce pendulum.

The selection of works will take over FACT's building to ensure an immersive experience where the visitor becomes part of the different environments, experimenting with light, sound, space and motion.

Winter Sparks features the awe-inspiring physics-based works of Canadian artist and composer Alexandre Burton, Dutch artist and academic Edwin van der Heide, and Spain-based Bosch & Simons, known for their complex 'music machines'.

The artists will be performing on the night alongside talks and an introduction to the exhibition, and Liverpool Organic Brewery will be providing complimentary refreshments.
