Autumn/Winter 2019

Discover something new this autumn and winter as we explore the growing impact of technology on our daily lives.

Enjoy free entry to all exhibitions including you feel me_, a major group show that invites you to feel the future and imagine a world without division. Bringing a close to our 2019 theme of gender, identity and representation, the exhibition transforms our galleries into alternative worlds filled with artworks made from virtual reality, artificial intelligence, ceramics and game design.

Alongside the exhibition is an exciting programme of events including talks, tours, workshops and films with special screenings of Belladonna of Sadness (1973), Barbarella (1968) and Daughters of the Dust (1991).

Don’t miss our young people and family events which have had a gaming takeover! Break the boundaries of reality and explore virtual space together in Do Something Saturdays or create your own escape room in our half-term Prototype Camp: Escape the Game.

We hope you enjoy your visit!

This season is presented by Curator-in-Residence, Helen Starr. This residency is kindly supported by ArtFund.

Helen Starr is an Afro-Carib Trinidadian Blixn* who lives between Trinidad and the UK. She has worked in the Arts sector for over 25 years. She founded The Mechatronic Library in 2010, to enable artists to engage with new media tools such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual reality (VR), Game engines, and 3D printing technologies. Starr’s focus is on the wellbeing of local communities. Working with museum curators and education teams, Starr’s hope is that cutting edge artworks can provide a glimpse of a future filled with hope.
