A poet, a performance artist and an art critic walk into an exhibition - it's Carrie Rudzinski, Sarita Das and Lucinda Bennett. These three contemporary voices provide fresh interpretation as they untangle, interrogate and vivify the works in our new exhibition, "Honestly Speaking: the word, the body and the internet". With drinks and exclusive after-hours viewing, this night of activation is not to be missed.

Complimentary refreshments served, more details to follow.
