Art, music, film, talks, beer, wine, and food. Celebrate the return of Open Late—our changing programme of late-night events on the first Thursday of the month. We kick off 2021 with live music from songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Andre Smith (of Heavy Chest). Come and listen to “ undulating blend of bedroom beats and light melodies, juxtaposed with moody textures and tones.”

At 6pm, enjoy a highlighted tour of the gallery's current exhibitions, then create your own cyanotype print in the education studio, with a drink in hand! Combine fragments to create an image, then print it as a cyanotype photograph. Inspired by Zac Langdon-Pole’s Paradise Blueprint.

From 6-8pm, watch Hera Lindsay Bird's favourite artist Hannah Salmon make a crazily detailed drawing of lichen while connected to Simon Ingram’s painting machine, Monadic Device.

At 7pm, writer Tim Corballis leads the panel discussion, More the Human, in response to the gallery's Zac Langdon-Pole and Simon Ingram shows.

At 8.30pm, enjoy ''laid back vocals, mellow warbly guitar tones, and effortless movement between moods' from singer/songwriter, Andre Smith.


5pm Exhibitions open, DJ Kedron, enjoy supper treats from Taco Addicts and cash bar.

6pm Highlights tour of current exhibitions Zac Langdon-Pole: Containing Multitudes and Simon Ingram: The Algorithmic Impulse.

6–8pm Drop-in cyanotype prints. Make the familiar strange. Create your own artwork.

Also at 6–8pm: Artist Hannah Salmon creates a drawing while on Simon Ingram’s painting machine Monadic Device.
