the dark show
We are delighted to announce the Curiosity Collective’s dark show, Friday 15th to Sunday 17th January 2010.
Friday - Open at nightfall (5pm) until 9pm, reception at 7:30pm
Saturday - 5pm to 9pm
Sunday - 4pm to 6pm, talk by the artists at 4pm
The setting is the mediaeval St Mary-at-the-Quay Church, in the heart of Ipswich’s historic dock area, where the creations of the Curiosity Collective will be at play after dark.
Using a mixture of sound and light, our technological curiosities will delight, surprise and perhaps confound. Allowing the visitor to experience this atmospheric space in new ways.
We anticipate it being pretty cold, so please wrap-up warm.
The dark show will be our sixth exhibition in Ipswich since we emerged in 2005.
With thanks again to our friends at Key Arts for the use of the space.
St Mary-at-the-Quay is ten minutes walk from the bus and train stations, with nearby parking available (map).
