First Flashback show now open

We’re delighted to have opened our first Flashback display last night. Drawn from our exhibition archive, it focuses on the gallery launch in 1999 and first exhibition by Gilbert & George. We share here some example exhibits, and a couple of photos of staff involved in putting the project together:  Claire Corrin, Exhibitions Organiser; Aimee Holmes, Digital Communications Co-ordinator,  Katie Fields, Gallery Co-ordinator, and Victoria Mayes, Head of Learning.

Flashback: 1999 runs until 29 November 2015.  Open Tuesday – Friday 12noon – 8pm, Saturday 11am-8pm, and Sunday 11am-5pm. Admission is free.
