Out of Darkness
7th May to 10th July 2016
Thursday-Sunday, 10.00am to 5.00pm

Leading the audience on an immersive journey through a series of artworks, the artist and lighting designer Jenny Kagan brings to life stories told to her by her parents about their survival in hiding in Lithuania during the Second World War.

Installed in the atmospheric Viaduct Theatre, ‘Out of Darkness’ uses images, music, projection and built environments to draw audiences into a narrative that is both personal and universal and to provoke our own feelings about survival, memory, light and dark.

Free admission. Suitable for age 8+

Due to problems with the distributors we were not able to show the Danish film
Due to problems with the distributors we were not able to show the Danish film 'A War'... but if you feel the need of an anti-war move, they don't come any greater than Renoir's 'La Grande Illusion' on 12th May...

Bone Tomahawk
Dir S. Craig Ahler. USA 2015. 2hr 12 mins. Cert 18.
Kurt Russell’s querulous posse sets out into the wild west to rescue a group of captives from cannibalistic cave dwellers. There is some stark, inventive gruesomeness in this ‘horror western’ - but its many fans adore it for the more amenable values of precise characterisation and exquisitely wry dialogue. The budget is small, the acting is exceptional… and, yes, most people will close their eyes at certain key points of the movie. Like the last 20 minutes, for example.
“… a most violent delight” - Variety

The Dean Clough Lego brick model
The Dean Clough Lego brick model will eventually use around a million bricks, be 35 foot long and have a chimney that's over 7 foot high.

RIGHT NOW, though, it's a 'mere' 15 foot long... and actually it's still pretty stunning.

Lego modellers Michael LeCount and Tony Priestman are at present studiously crafting the landscape around the East end of the half-mile site that used to be the world's largest carpet mill. You can see how it is progressing - for free - at any time during the normal gallery hours of 9.30am to 5.00pm, seven days a week.
