Join us for a slow wander around the galleries and an overview of our new exhibition Hollow Earth: Art, Caves & The Subterranean Imaginary led by members of our knowledgeable and friendly team.

Mapping both specific sites and imaginary underworlds, Hollow Earth considers why and how so many artists, musicians and filmmakers have been drawn below. Our Gallery Assistants offer their unique perspectives to help you explore the works and themes of our current exhibition. Everyone is welcome to join - this will be a light overview and conversation style event; you do not need any specific level of knowledge about (contemporary) art or the exhibitions.
