Join us at Kettle’s Yard after hours to explore the House and the current exhibition, Antony Gormley SUBJECT.
There will be live music, poetry readings, performances, talks, making and more. The café/bar will be open all night serving refreshments, beer, wine and non-alcoholic alternatives.
Tickets are £5 and booking is recommended.
From 6pm there will be performances throughout the spaces at Kettle’s Yard including work by Helen Adam, Tim Atkins, Joe Brainard, Antonia Cundy, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, Annja Newmann, Redell Olsen and Drew Milne, Stav Poleg and Lorenzo Thomas.
From 7pm enjoy poetry with music and birdsong with Lee Ann Brown, Haris Psarras, Louise Landes Levi, Thurston Moore, Julie Patton, Jonathan Skinner & Hanna Tuulikki.
In the galleries there will be pop up talks introducing the Antony Gormley SUBJECT exhibition with Director Andrew Nairne and students of the History of Art.
In the Clore Learning Studio, architect Sofia Singler will be running an art-making workshop inspired by Antony Gormley and Constellations in collaboration with Circuit. Join them as they help you map out the constellation of your life. Gormley suggests that constellations are intimately tied to bodies – they are visualisations of groups of celestial bodies in space, but also recall the human bodily experience by way of visualising emptiness, distance, scale and spatial relationships. Work with Singler and our young people’s group, Circuit, to add to a collective work of art with other visitors on the night.
On the top floor of the new spaces, explore astronomy with Matt Bothwell from the Institute of Astronomy at the University of Cambridge who will be talking about our desire to map the stars.
In collaboration with the Polyphonic Poetry Festival, Circuit and Cam Lates.
