What you’ll do
Watch this live show by artist Danny Smith about his love of nature, performance, and the colourful network of family and friends he has created around him.
Performances, which last 15 minutes, take place at 17:00 and 18:00. The second performance will be followed by a conversation where you will be able to ask the artist questions. The galleries will be open until 8pm for you to view Danny’s portrait. Turn up at a time that suits you.
The event plan:
- 17.00-17.15: Performance
- 18.00-18.15: Performance
- 18.15-18:45: Post-show conversation
There will be a Chill-Out Room next to the event space if you’d like to lie down or relax. There will be low lighting, comfortable seating, cushions and mats throughout the room. You can use ear defenders, earplugs, board games and materials with different textures.
The performance marks the installation of Danny Smith’s portrait in the Being Human gallery from 3 October.
His portrait by the artist Deborah Kelly is one of 21 works in the series ’No Human Being Is Illegal (In All Our Glory)’. Each portrait was created collaboratively over many months of open workshops. Participants collaged each image to reflect the subject’s identity, concerns, dreams or life story.
