Material Gain

Changeable Beast

18 Oct – 26 Nov 2023

An exhibition by a group of sculptors whose work is rooted in materiality and the gathering of ideas surrounding mass, volume and playfulness.

Rather than ill gotten gains or rags to riches, this exhibition explores the diverse, rich and valuable material conversations to be found in the work of Changeable Beast,  a collective of 24 artists who discuss what contemporary sculpture can be today with shows, events, talks and an educational programme.

SATURDAY EVENTS: Changeable Beast invites visitors to interact with a vibrant, integrated programme of performances, talks and workshops. These take place every Saturday throughout the six-week period. See times below*
