Join us to celebrate the launch of our new exhibitions, Charlotte Johannesson, Carolyn Lazard: Long Take and Rosalind Nashashibi: Hooks.

The work of textile artist and early computer art pioneer Charlotte Johannesson represents a synthesis between the artisanal and the digital. Working across disciplines and mediums, Carolyn Lazard explores the social and political dimensions of care. By turns lush, fractured and dream-like, Rosalind Nashashibi's new paintings are concerned with mirroring, monograms and the question of a “signature” style, by way of curtains and split surfaces.

Galleries Open 6.30-9pm

Blend at Contemporary Open until 11pm with delicious poutine from Squeaky Beaver and drinks by Blend.

Party the night away with live music and DJs in collaboration with Running Circle.

This exhibition launch, like all our programme, is free admission for all but donations are both encouraged and needed. As a registered charity, every donation – no matter the size – makes a big difference. Suggested donation £3. Thank you.
